What is a Recertification?

A recertification inspection is a regular check of your existing height safety system to ensure that it is in good working order, is compliant with Australian standards, and that there are no irregularities or areas where the system’s integrity may be compromised.

These inspections should be undertaken at least annually, however if the system is frequently used or in an environment where corrosion or damage is likely to occur then more regular inspections may be required.

With height safety systems often located on roofs – out of sight and out of mind – it is quite easy for damage to go unnoticed. Damaged systems may not offer a worker adequate protection in the event of a fall.

During a recertification, an inspector attends site and ensures all aspects of the existing installed system are compliant with the relevant standards, in good working order, and that the system was installed to Australian standards as well as manufacturer installation procedures.

All systems and equipment are visually inspected for damage and if there is any noticeable deterioration or deformation of the components or the structure the system must not be used and should be tagged ‘Do Not Use’ until corrective action by a competent person has been completed.

A report is prepared outlining the issues found and providing recommended repairs or upgrades that should be completed to make the system compliant.
