SRL Fall Protection Inspection QLD

SRL Fall Protection Inspection Rockhampton

Self-Retracting Lifeline (SRL), sometimes referred to as a Self-Retracting Lanyard or Inertia reel, refers to an amazing fall-arrest system that provides reliable protection and support for manual work. An SRL prevents a fall by locking onto a line when there is a sudden taut jerk, as opposed to merely absorbing a fall. Due to the serious nature and function of an SRL, SRL fall protection inspections are critical to ensure devices are all in perfect working order.

SRL’s allow for free movement by extending the line when the action is natural, and locking the line once it is unnatural, in the event of a fall. Neglecting to have your SRL correctly inspected and serviced could cause the locking mechanism to fail, making the SRL redundant in the case of a fall. At NSS, we inspect all SRL devices and provide maintenance, repairs, or replacements.

Our Experience in SRL Fall Protection Inspection & Servicing

The requirement for the maintenance of SRL’s and other fall-arrest systems and devices is included in AS/NZS1891.4 2009, conducting inspections is of critical importance when it comes to fall protection. Personal equipment SRL’s should be checked before and after each use by a height safety operator or by another competent person. These regular checks do not need to be documented. However, routine SRL fall protection inspections will be recorded.

SRL fall protection systems need to be externally inspected every 3 to 6 months and have a full inspection and service in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines. Inspections and services need to be carried out by a trained and certified height safety equipment officer. At NSS all our inspectors are fully trained and competent height safety equipment technicians. We will ensure your SRL’s comply with the QLD state-wide regulations of height safety equipment maintenance.

How Does Damage Occur To SRL Fall Protection Equipment?

Whether it be from heavy use or exposure to harsh extremities, SRL fall protection can become damaged or worn to the point where it can no longer safely be used by workers. Potential damage to SRL equipment may include tears, rips, bent latches and hooks, corrosion, or any other external defects.

If SRL equipment is stored in an improper environment, it can become damaged from pests, mildew, and other hazards in poor storage conditions. Regular inspection of SRL fall protection equipment is the key to preventing equipment damage from resulting in injury, accident or damage to a person or worksite.

Why Are SRL Fall Protection Inspection Services So Important?

The importance of regular SRL fall protection inspection Rockhampton services cannot be overstated. One of the most common causes of workplace injury is falling from heights. With SRL fall protection systems, workers can rely on high-quality equipment that will prevent serious injury from falls or accidents. However, if the SRL fall protection equipment is faulty, deteriorated, or overused, it will not provide sufficient protection from falls or injury. For this very reason, regular inspections to SRL equipment are crucial in maintaining the safety for all those working from heights.

How Often Do I Need a SRL Fall Protection Inspection Service?

SRL fall protection systems need to be regularly inspected every 3 to 6 months and have a full inspection and service as recommended by the original manufacturer. How often you need SRL fall protection inspection Rockhampton services also depends on how often the SRL is used. SRL's with severe and continuous use require more regular, thorough inspections than those that undergo infrequent to light use.
