Course Overview

Our Safety Harness FPE Formal Inspection Course delivers a minimum of 4 hours of both theory and hands on practical instruction and provides delegates with the required competency to safely and correctly carry out the statutory inspections to general items of fall protection equipment and accurately record their findings. This course incorporates the guidance on inspection regimes detailed in INDG-367 along with supporting sample forms and documentation.

The inspection procedures recommended in this course have been discussed with representatives of manufacturers, suppliers, installers and major users. It is recommend that formal, in-depth inspections should be carried out and recorded periodically at minimum intervals of every six months by a competent person. This safety harness course is aimed at providing the competence required to complete both interim and detailed inspections and record the findings on a range of commonly used fall protection equipment.

This course is aimed at personnel who are or will be responsible for the formal inspection of safety harnesses, lanyards and associated F.P.E (Fall Protection Equipment) in the work place. There are no prerequisite required for this course although a working knowledge of safety harnesses, lanyards and associated F.P.E (Fall Protection Equipment) would be an advantage.

Since the safe use of fall protection equipment requires that delegates consult safety notices and read and thoroughly understand the manufacturer’s instruction manual, English literacy and language comprehension are important requirements for any user.

Each delegate will be given instruction in all relevant legislation, guidance, standards and best practice to be able to design a scheme of examination, produce a examination inspection report and inspect common work at height FPE (Fall Protection Equipment) including:

  • Safety Harnesses
  • Fall Arrest Lanyards
  • Work Position Lanyards
  • Work Restraint Lanyards
  • Connectors

There will be a theory session where delegates will be expected to carry out a number of formal inspections on fall protection equipment. At the end of the course, delegates will take a short multiple choice test. Upon successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a Kentec E- Certificate of Training, valid for 3 years.

The course covers the following:

  • Legislation, Standards and Guidance regarding FPE
  • CE and Manufacturing Marking Systems
  • Inspection of Safety Harnesses
  • Inspection of Webbing Lanyards
  • Inspection of Rope Lanyards
  • Inspection of Connectors
  • Inspection of Webbing Anchor Slings
