Equipment Inspection

At Anglo Access we're not just here to sell your equipment to you, we're also available for equipment advice, maintenance and inspections. Your rope access or work at height equipment must be maintained in a safe and usable condition. Harnesses and their associated equipment are classed as 'Category 3 PPE - Protects the user form mortal danger'.

Under the 'LOLER - Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations' equipment must be inspected at 'regular intervals' by a 'competent person' who can act 'independently' of the companies interests to make an informed judgment about the condition of equipment.

Here at Anglo Access our rope access equipment inspection and work at height equipment inspection charges vary. This will depend upon on the range and volume of items requiring inspection. £20 Will automatically be chargeable for your equipment inspection to cover our admin fees.

Following each complete equipment inspection a .PDF inspection sheet for each of your items will be provided. A detailed break-down of the inspection plus an overview sheet containing any important updates regarding the safety of your equipment will also be provided. Certificates of conformity, date of first use and any previous inspection records will be required before we are able to carry out the inspection, this is to verify the identity and history of each item. We can discuss this with you further when arranging your inspection with you.

We charge the following fees for inspecting individual items of rope access and work at height safety equipment in addition to the £20 admin charge.
