Sydney Safety Trainings equipment inspectors will inspect:

  • harnesses
  • lanyards – adjustable, static & shock absorbing
  • rope grabs
  • slings
  • pole straps
  • individual shock absorbers
  • roof workers kits

During the inspection we will appropriately tag your equipment and create a “safety register” which we will provide to you as an excel attachment and a hard copy.  Any equipment found to fail test, will be  quarantined.

The tag will have the equipment name, serial number and next due test date.

If you only have a few items for inspection,  all you need to do is drop them into Sydney Safety Training at Villawood in Sydney and we will carry out the inspection within 24 hours.  If you have many items, we can arrange for a Sydney Safety Height Safety Equipment Inspector to visit your location to complete the inspections.

If you need your equipment inspected, or have an equipment related enquiry, please call us on 02 9892 3422.
