Rope Access Anchor Testing

Anchor installation and testing

There is hardly a building with some form of rope system on the roof, being it for fall arrest (AS/NZS 1891.1.2007) or rope access (AS/NZS 4488.1 and 2). And while they look the same they are inherently different.


REGULATIONS

Regulations are in place requiring the employer (or person in charge of the site including the body corporate) to ensure a safe work place. These Regulations are often backed by specific requirements for working at heights and often then refers to Codes of Practice, Australian Standards and Industry bodies such as ARAA (Australian Rope Access Association). These Regulations are LAW and can be used in a prosecution should an incident happen on your site. The Building Manager or Body Corporate may be seen to be in control of the site even when the works are subcontracted out.


These regulations are the reason why you should be sure that your system is the right one and tested.

Gecko Rope Access can help you with new systems, updating older systems and testing them every year to the standards.

With that you will get a full report and checklist of what you as a building owner/body corporate should ask every contractor wanting to use the system. This is the only way to make sure you will be protected in the case of an incident.

PPE (personal Protective Equipment) Inspection

Current legislation AS 1891.4 requires all height safety equipment such as harnesses, lanyards, static lines, fall arrest equipment etc. to be inspected at intervals not exceeding six months by a competent person.

So what does competent mean?

A person with a full understanding of potential hazards related to the equipment and the work it may be used for. A person with appropriate practical and theoretical knowledge and experience of the equipment (which will generally but not always be classified as PPE, and/or lifting equipment) to be thoroughly examined as will enable them to detect defects or weaknesses, to assess their importance in relation to the safety and continued use of the equipment, and be able to specify appropriate remedial action.

And that is exactly what our certification says!


We can help you with Inspect, Certify, Tag and Record all your PPE.

So make sure your PPE is inspected by the right competent person the next time it is due. Call us!
