PPE Kit and Fall Protection Equipment Testing

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is vital to most Work at Height and will protect personnel from potentially hazardous falls. PPE used as part of a Fall Protection System should be visually inspected before each use. A full visual inspection must be carried out once every 6 months, and fully tested for compliance every 12 months by a competent specialist.

‏‏Heightsafe not only supply and install all Working at Height assets, we also provide testing and maintenance services that deliver guaranteed safety for your PPE kit.

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. It is also important for a PPE register to be in place for all equipment, ready for personnel to inspect.‎


  • Testing Frequency and Standards

    It is recommended to have your PPE visually inspected every 6 months, and fully tested for compliance every 12 months.
