Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is vital to most Work at Height and will protect personnel from potentially hazardous falls.
It is recommended to have your PPE visually inspected every 6 months, and fully tested for compliance every 12 months. It is important to remember that each piece of PPE has a specified life span, and once the PPE Kit has reached its life span it will need to be replaced, regardless of how many times it has been used.
TIP: don’t forget to complete a pre-use check prior to any Work at Height taking place!
