Re-certification of Height Safety and Roof Access Systems
Height Safety Engineers are leaders in the ongoing re-certification of installed height safety and roof access systems
Under Australian law, all types of height safety and roof access systems are required to be inspected and re-certified as meeting Australian standards on an annual basis.
Due to the inherent risks of working at heights, it is vitally important that fall prevention, fall arrest and fall restraint systems be kept in proper working order so that they function as designed in the event of a fall.
Safety systems that have previously been compliant may fall out of compliance for a number of reasons, making annual inspections critical in ensuring systems meet current regulations and requirements.
As height safety and roof access systems tend to be outdoors, exposure to the natural elements can be detrimental to the performance of system components over time. Changes made to the structure the system is installed on may also render it non-compliant.

Why Is Re-Certification Needed?
Height safety and roof access systems are required to be inspected every 12 months (one year). This includes roof anchor points, fall arrest systems, guardrails and static lines.
Inspection of height safety and roof access systems and equipment is governed by AS/NZS 1891.4. This standard states “items of equipment which are in regular use shall be subjected to periodic inspection and where applicable, servicing”.
Re-certification of height safety and roof access systems involves a physical inspection of the components of the system to ensure that there is no deterioration of the system components or any structure they are attached to.
At Height Safety Engineers, we take safety seriously. You can read more about what drives us to continually improve systems and procedures in The Height Safety Engineers Difference, below.
