Safe Access Equipment Recertification

Safe access equipment must be annually recertified under the Safety, Health and Welfare Act at Work Regulations 2007 Part 4: Work at Height.

At Skyway we provide inspection, recertification and maintenance to ensure your safety systems remain compliant with the latest safety standards. Call us to discuss your recertification requirements. 

Does Recertification apply to you?

The work at height Regulations apply to all work at height where there is a risk of a fall that could cause personal injury. They place duties on both employers and the self-employed.

Regulation 119 sets down the requirements for the inspection of work at height work equipment

Our Facilities Services Department provides annual and 6-monthly recertification for safety systems throughout Ireland.  Our qualified engineers recertify and provide testing of all types of fall prevention and safe access systems.

Recertification is required under Regulation 119

Work equipment exposed to conditions causing deterioration that is liable to result in danger must be inspected at regular intervals and also where any exceptional circumstances have occurred that are liable to jeopardise its safety. These inspections are important in ensuring that the equipment can continue to be used safely and that any deterioration is detected and remedied before it results in unacceptable risks.

A competent person should determine the nature, frequency and extent of any inspection, taking account of such factors as the type of equipment, how and where it is used and the likelihood of deterioration. Periods between inspections should be chosen on the basis of risk assessment and should be reviewed in the light of experience.
