Height Safety Systems need to be inspected and maintained periodically.
Previously compliant height safety systems can be rendered unsafe/non-complaint for many reasons:
- Structural Changes to building/vehicles (planned or otherwise)
- Compromised building material integrity due to:
- Weather events
- Stress or vibration weakening
- Damaged Height Safety Equipment fixtures due to misuse or collateral damage
- Poor Quality Installation
Don’t Leave your system recertification until its too late.
It is critical to ensure that Height Safety Systems are regularly inspected and maintained to ensure a safe working environment and compliance with Australian legislation.
Australian Standards requires ALL height safety systems to be inspected regularly due to the high risk nature of working at heights.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I have my roof access system certified?
WHS legislation and Australian Standards require Fall Arrest Equipment to be inspected & certified by a suitably competent person prior to first use and then on a regular basis. This inspection and certification is to ensure the equipment is correctly installed in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions. It is also important to ensure the structure to which an anchor is attached is adequate for the imposed loads, & has not been modified and/or deteriorated in any way that the structural adequacy could be affected.
How often should I have this done?
Australian Standards require that inspection intervals be in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. As a general rule these intervals are as follows:
- Fall Arrest Anchors – Annually
- Horizontal Lifelines – Annually
How can HSE help you?
All inspections are carried out in accordance with AS/NZS 1891-2000 Part 4 Section 9. In the case of fixed Anchorages and Static lines covered by Part 9-3-3, the inspection /recertification includes, but is not limited to the following:
- The inspection interval for anchorages shall be every 12 months.
- Anchorages shall be visually inspected for signs of deterioration which might make them unserviceable together with any other requirements contained in manufacturer’s instructions.
- The parent structure shall also be visually inspected for modifications or deterioration which might lead to loss of anchorages. Anchors such as friction or glued in anchorages shall be proof tested in accordance with Clause 3.1.2 (g) as part of each inspection
