HSE Guidance on Inspecting Fall Arrest Equipment

This is a useful recent release / updated Industrial Guidance Document (INDG 367) by the UK Health and Safety Executive.

Click here > INDG 367 Inspecting fall arrest equipment made from webbing or rope.

This leaflet is mainly aimed at employers who are responsible for the use of fall arrest equipment incorporating energy-absorbing lanyards made from webbing. It gives generic advice on inspection regimes for this equipment where it is used to provide protection against falls from a height. However, many of the principles can also be applied to non-energy-absorbing lanyards and safety harnesses used for the same purpose. They can also be applied to similar equipment made from

rope. The leaflet does not cover other equipment such as anchor points. Employers should consult the manufacturer and/or supplier of the equipment for any productspecific inspection requirements.
