Safety Line Compliance Testing

Often used as a personal measure of protection whilst Working at Height, when connected to the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Safety Line, Cable or Track systems used for Work at Height require compliance testing at least once every 12 months.‏‏ However, it is worth noting that you should test these systems every 6 months for peace of mind.


  • Testing Frequency and Standards

    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.

    Without your system being certified and compliant, you run the risk of being held accountable for any accident that may occur. With years of experience behind Heightsafe’s Compliance Testing division, you will have the security that your Safety Line systems are suitable for your building and they meet regulatory standards.
