How is Fall Protection Equipment Inspected and Maintained?

All components of fall protection must be inspected before each use. Workers must ensure that the components have no damage, abnormalities, and that they operate properly. Any damaged equipment must be properly reported and tagged for non-use.

All components must be inspected for any signs of damage such as frayed edges, pulled stitching, burns, or holes. Any metal components should be tested for any damage or abnormalities. Most fall protection components have indicators to show if it has been involved in a fall, and must not be used again.
