SRD Inspection & Revalidation

RDC050P_edited.png

Servicing and inspection of mechanical fall protection devices, such as Self Retracting Devices (SRDs) often referred to as Self Retracting Lifelines (SRLs) or Lanyards are important requirements of any effective fall protection safety program.

 

The frequency of servicing and inspection as well as who should perform these activities are critical items. All fall protection equipment, including SRDs, must be inspected before each use. If inspection reveals a defective condition, the SRDs must be removed from use and repaired/serviced.

Servicing Frequency

 

Servicing frequency is dependent on the applicable country or local codes/ regulations that are in affect for that specific region where the SRD is in use. The work environment, the type of work being performed, and the frequency of use are some of the factors that will determine how often the SRD should be serviced. The following frequency information should be viewed as minimum requirements.

 

Please note that devices certified under standard CSA Z259.2.2- 98 must be serviced and maintained using a different schedule than CSA Z259.2.2- 17.

 

Reference Standards CSA Z259.2.2-98
