Capital Safety , home of the world-renowned DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands has announced the release of their updated ‘Inspection & Maintenance of Fall Protection Equipment’ poster.
Last year, as part of its commitment to worker safety Capital Safety introduced a range of free educational fall protection posters aimed to assist users to work safely at height.
Due to recent changes to the AS/NZS 1891.4:2009 standard, Capital Safety has updated their Inspection & Maintenance posters to incorporate these amendments. This standard covers the selection, use and maintenance of industrial fall arrest systems and devices.
The main changes in both the standard and the poster encompass inspection periods on a variety of fall protection equipment as well as levels of competency.
Capital Safety’s full colour fall protection posters are supplied free of charge (within Australia and New Zealand) and cover some of the key aspects of fall protection such as:
- Equipment inspection and maintenance
- Fall clearances
- Harness inspection and fitting
- Terminology and explanation of fall protection concepts
The posters are ideal for use in crib rooms, site offices, training areas and retail outlets or any place where fall protection and height safety are a concern. The posters provide a continuous and practical reminder of working safely at height.
Free sets of fall protection posters can be ordered by simply completing a Poster Order Form and faxing or emailing the form back to Capital Safety. The posters will be mailed out free of charge. Order forms can be obtained by contacting Capital Safety, or by visiting their website and clicking on the resources tab.
The posters are not intended to replace competent training in fall protection and/or the use of fall protection equipment, but rather serve as a guide and reference point.
Capital Safety is the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of height safety, confined space and industrial rescue equipment with 11 operating sites worldwide.
Capital Safety provides accredited competency-based training programmes throughout Australia in fall protection and working safely at height.
