Fall Arrest Equipment Inspection

Effective fall arrest systems save lives. As an employer, you are obligated to ensure that all of your fall arrest equipment is safe and in working condition. Fall arrest equipment is one of TRAIN SMART’s areas of expertise and our experts are here to help.

Fires can ignite without warning. Don’t let one catch you off guard! Use TRAIN SMART to make sure that your fire extinguisher is up to code and ready to go when you need it.

Fire extinguishers need to be inspected regularly to ensure that they’re working safely and effectively. As an employer, you’re responsible for ensuring these records of these inspections are maintained.

Fall arrest equipment inspections make sure your equipment meets all the most up-to-date safety requirements. Additionally, the inspector makes sure the equipment is ready for use by workers without any issue.

Our thorough fall arrest inspection includes:


  • Inspect hardware and straps to ensure that they are intact and undamaged.
  • Check that moving parts work freely through their full range of motion.
  • Check that webbing is free of burns, cuts, loose or broken stitching, frayed material, and signs of heat or chemical damage.
  • Make sure that the fall arrest indicator has not deployed.


  • Make sure the lanyard fastens securely to the D-ring on the harness.
  • Inspect the lanyard for fraying, kinking, and loose or broken stitching.
  • Look for rust, cracks, and damage to the lanyard hardware.
  • Inspect energy-absorbing lanyards regularly. Look for stress or tearing on the cover jacket of the energy absorber.


  • Inspect fibre rope lifelines for fraying, burns, kinking, cuts, and signs of wear and tear.
  • Check retractable lifelines to ensure they operate smoothly. Pull out the line and jerk it suddenly. The braking action should be immediate and tight.


  • Look for damage, cracking, dents, bends, or signs of deformation.
  • Check that connecting rings are centred—not bent to one side or otherwise deformed.
  • Check for rust or sharp edges, signs of wear or metal fatigue. and moving parts that don’t work smoothly
