Inspection of PPE
Inspection of PPE against falls (compliant with BGG 906 and EN 360:2002)
The use of PPE against falls on work platforms is already standard practise today and serves to actively protect operating persons in the cage.
The annually required safety inspection of the PPE against falls should also be kept in mind.
We can assist you with this!
The EC Directive 89/686/CEE requires the regular inspection of all PPE, at least every 12 months
The purpose of this inspection is the early recognition of any irregularities of the equipment which could then lead to a hazardous situation. This precaution, in addition to the obligatory inspection prior to and after each operation, ensures that the equipment remains in a compliant state.
Inspection according to the manufacturer’s specification:
- Prior to issue to the user
- Prior to and after each use
- Every 12 months by an qualified person (expert) for PPE against falls
We will gladly carry out an annual inspection for you.
