Cable Based Fall Arrest and Restraint Systems
It is a requirement in accordance with BSEN 795, that any fall arrest system used for Work at Height is inspected at least once every 12 months or immediately following the system being used in anger. Weather conditions can have a big impact on the integrity of cable systems, with volatile weather conditions being a major factor in causing cables to slacken – it is therefore imperative to any user to visually inspect the system before use to spot any abnormalities, which may have occurred within the time period between the annual testing and inspection.
Overgrown foliage around the system can also prevent users from travelling freely and affect the use of cable movement aids such as the Roodsafe Lifewheel, so regular roof maintenance is required to maintain safe Work at Height.
