If you want to be sure that your employees are safe when they are working at heights, and if you want to make sure that your business is fully compliant with all of the height safety equipment inspection requirements, then you might have scheduled an upcoming height safety equipment inspection with a professional inspection service. If you are hoping that everything will go quickly, easily and smoothly during this upcoming inspection appointment, these tips should help.
List Your Height Safety Equipment
First of all, if you are wondering how much it's going to cost to have your equipment inspected, or if you're wondering approximately how long the inspection is going to take, then you should provide a thorough, accurate list of all of the different equipment that you have. This is also a good way to be sure that the inspector brings along enough people to help and that they bring along the right equipment and tools to perform proper inspections on your equipment.
Gather Equipment Together
If you want to speed up the process of having your height safety equipment inspection done, you should think about gathering all of your equipment up in one area. Also, make sure there is enough room for the inspector to work. This makes their job easier and speeds things along.
Perform an Inspection Beforehand
It's never a bad idea for you and your employees to perform an inspection on your height safety equipment before your actual official inspection. This can give you an idea of whether or not your equipment should pass inspection. Plus, it's a good thing for you and your employees to learn how to perform these inspections; then, you will know what to do to check over your equipment in-between inspections, which is very important for safety reasons.
Let Them Know What Your Equipment is Used For
Different height safety equipment is suitable for different jobs. An inspector can let you know whether or not you are using the right equipment for the jobs that you and your employees are doing, and they can make sure that the equipment is in suitable condition for the purposes that you're going to be using it for.
Keep Your Paperwork
Even though there are many other reasons to have height safety equipment inspections done, one reason why you are probably doing it is because you are required to. Therefore, you should be sure that you keep any documentation that you receive from the inspection so you can prove that your business has complied like it's supposed to.
