Ensure the Safety of Workers with Fall Protection and Confined Space Equipment Rentals

Everyone who supplies a workplace with equipment of any kind, including fall protection and confined space equipment rentals, also has the responsibility to ensure these items are in good working condition. This equipment being in good working order is crucial to workplace safety and cannot be overlooked. Call us today for an estimate on rental equipment. 

Employers Responsibility 

If you are renting equipment from a supplier, you must have someone on-site trained who can go over the fall protection and confined space equipment rentals to look for any signs of damage. The person who does the inspection should be someone who is trained in fall protection and confined space equipment inspection.  

Things to Inspect 

The person doing the inspection should check for the following things: 

  • Signs of corrosion on any of the metal pieces including clips and chains 
  • Wear and tear from overuse that includes chipping and scratches 
  • Fraying lines or cuts in rope or harnesses 
  • Self-Retraction Lines are moving safely and have no signs of wear 
  • There are no visual signs of damage 
  • These are some of the signs of an issue with personal protection equipment.  

Supplier Responsibilities 

When you are getting fall protection and confined space equipment rentals from any company, it is their responsibility to ensure all equipment is certified. It is also their responsibility to ensure that the equipment is in good working condition.  

As an employer, you need to be aware of your rights when it comes to fall protection and confined space equipment rentals. Whoever is renting you the equipment, be it personal protection equipment or large items like a swing stage, is responsible for ensuring that the equipment is working correctly.  

Your Responsibility 

When renting any type of fall protection or confined space equipment, make sure it comes to you in good working order. Depending on what equipment you rented, you need to validate there are annual, semi-annual, and pre-operational records of inspection. Furthermore, there should also be structural inspection records as well as engineering reports, and, if necessary, maintenance reports. If the equipment isn’t in good working condition or has visual signs of wear, don’t accept it.
