It is important that Ladders, Steps and Podiums are regularly inspected to ensure equipment is safe and fit for purpose.
In line with guidance from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), access equipment should be inspected on a regular basis.
Durable, flexible and easy to use, the Inspection Tagging System is designed to provide assurance that equipment is being properly inspected and maintained. Safety Inspection Tags can be used on all equipment where there is a legal requirement to have the item inspected on a regular basis - this includes ladders, steps and towers.
Inspection Tags provide a simple visual check of an item of equipment's last inspection date and next due inspection date. If equipment fails to pass an inspection then it can be immediately identified and marked as unfit for purpose by flipping the Tag to show the reverse side marked in bright red 'Do Not Use This Equipment.' The Inspection Tag Status can be clearly displayed on the equipment within the Tag Holder which clips shut and securely holds the Inspection Tag in place.
PASMA Inspection Records are available individually or in packs of 20.
Safety & Customer Focus - There is no such thing as a problem that we cannot deal with.
The work at Height Regulations require that mobile access towers are inspected after assembly and before use by a competent person, that a written report of that inspection is completed before going off duty, and that a copy of the report is given to the person for whom the report was completed with 24 hours. PASMA in consultation with the HSE, have developed the PASMA Tower Inspection Record for this purpose. As well as providing a visual indicator of the tower’s inspection status it, also acts as a written report, and by affixing the Record to the tower, you satisfy the requirement to “give to the person for whom it was completed within 24 hours.”
When the record is full, it is removed from the tower (if the tower is still being used, a new Tower Inspection Record is commenced), and the previous is retained as a record of the inspections until the work is completed, and thereafter at your office for a further three months, as required by the Regulations. The HSE Guidance indicates, in addition to the 7-day frequency of inspections, that a tower be inspected after any event likely to have affected its stability or structural integrity such as adverse weather conditions. You may be able to think of other events, which could have such effect.
It is important to note that the Regulations do not require a written report each time a tower is moved or relocated to the same site.
As well as being suitable for recording inspections, the reverse of the PASMA Inspection Record can also be used as a visual indicator and record that the tower is not to be used, because it is incomplete, damaged or otherwise unsafe.
If your tower is incomplete or is in a dangerous condition, you must let other people know. You should affix a Tower Incomplete, Tower Damaged to Tower Unsafe sign in a prominent position or adjacent to an access point, so that any potential users are aware of its condition and do not attempt to use it.
