Ensure safety for all workers on your site with a full-body harness inspection checklist
A full-body harness also referred to as a safety harness, is the wearable part of a personal fall arrest system. A worker is connected to the anchorage point by a full body harness, preventing them from falling and striking a lower level or item. Many workers are injured each year when they fall from a height and hit their heads. Full-body harnesses can prevent this by keeping the worker connected to the ground at all times and it is crucial to inspect their condition with a full-body harness checklist.
Regular inspection of your full-body harness is essential to ensure it is safe for use. Follow these guidelines to make sure your equipment meets safety standards or customize Lumiform's template to achieve safety adjusted to your situation:
Check the fit of the straps by ensuring they are comfortable but tight enough to keep you secure. The wear level should be adjusted regularly.
Check that there is no rust or corrosion on any components, including buckles, fasteners, and rivets. All hardware must meet current safety requirements for fall prevention purposes.
Look for signs of wear or damage - fraying straps, tears in fabric near anchor points, etc – which could indicate instability in usage or potential failure during a fall event. If any repairs need to be made, replace all worn parts.
It is important to check the condition and functionality of your worker's full-body harness to ensure safety at work
