However, it is worth noting that you should test these systems every 6 months for peace of mind.
It is recommended that any fall arrest system used for Work at Height is inspected at least once every 12 months. Weather conditions can have a big impact on the stability of cable systems, with excessive snow causing cables to slacken – it is therefore imperative to visually inspect the system regularly to spot any abnormalities. Vegetation growing around the system can also prevent users from travelling freely, so regular roof maintenance is required to maintain safe Work at Height.
