What is height safety recertification?

Recertification is the process of conducting regular inspections of height safety, roof access and fall protection systems to ensure they are in good condition.

These inspections also confirm the design and installation of the system is compliant with Australian standards and regulations, and has been completed per the component manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines.

At HSE, the protection of people who rely on your height safety or roof access system is our first priority. After a thorough inspection of your installed system, we will notify you of its current status.

Compliant systems be issued with a NATA-accredited certificate of compliance.

Should we find any defects or non-compliant aspects of your installed system, HSE will provide you with a detailed report, containing photographs, of the defects and recommendations on what improvements or rectification works will need to be undertaken in order to for you to bring your system back into compliance.

Does your roof require height safety recertification?

All permanent height safety and fall protection systems require an inspection at least every 12 months under Australian standards. The inspections need to be undertaken by a competent and experienced professional to make sure all legislative requirements and standards are being met. It also ensures the system provides adequate levels of safety to its operator.

Height safety and fall protection fixtures and fittings take on a variety of forms, but the most common types found on roofs include anchor points, ladders, access platforms, guard rails, static lines and gates.

Why are roof recertification inspections necessary?

Australian standards dictate that recertification inspections of all permanent height safety and fall protection systems occur at least annually. These inspections should confirm that a system is in good working order and ready for use by an operator.

Working at heights is inherently dangerous. It is important that all height safety and fall protection systems be kept in proper working order. Worker safety relies on these systems functioning as intended should a slip or fall occur.

Having a safety system is not just a matter of installing a ladder bracket, anchor point or static line on your roof and thinking that is enough. A system could fall out of compliance for any number of reasons and it is important that regular inspections are carried out to identify and rectify any deficiencies that may have effected the components.

The nature of fall protection equipment on roofs is that they are can easily be forgotten about as they are out of sight and out of mind. They can often become compromised by exposure to natural elements or modification or damage to the structure into which they were originally installed.

To protect people: The values that drive HSE

Height Safety Engineers strives to protect people. At work, at home, our team, your team. Read how HSE came to formalise the values that we live out every job, every time.

What if your roof does not have anchor points?

Fall protection systems can come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. They can also be made up using many different components depending on the access needs of the building, the design of the space where the system will be used and the frequency of access in order to undertake work.

As a result, many roofs may not have, or may not need, anchor points as part of a fall protection system.

The absence of roof anchor points does not negate the need for a recertification inspection if you have people working at heights using a fall protection system. No matter what sort of fall protection system or working at heights system your building may have, an inspection is required at least annually under Australian standards.
