Zokal Safety Australia consult, audit, risk assess, inspect and certify all height safety systems.
Zokal WHS consultants are trained to conduct audits/risk assessments of your facilities and structures to ensure that you meet your obligations of the many complex Australian Standards, Codes of Practice and WH&S legislation.
Zokal offers a wide range of auditing and risk assessment services designed to inform our clients of the current state of their assets compared to the requirements of regulations governing the work environments they operate in.
Zokal Height Inspectors provide onsite Inspection and Certification of your height safety systems to meet the exacting requirements of Australian Standards and WH&S Legislation ensuring 100% compliance and minimising risk of accident, heavy fines and possible jail time.
The requirements for the maintenance of height safety equipment are included in AS/NZS1891 Part 4 which covers the selection, safe use and maintenance of industrial fall arrest systems and devices designed for use in restraint, limited free fall and free fall applications.
Industrial fall arrest systems and devices include safety harnesses, horizontal lifelines and rails, fall arrest devices, and associated lanyards, connectors, anchorages and fittings – and maintenance covers the maintenance requirements and recommendations for inspection, storage, servicing and cleaning for this equipment.
There are many types of height safety anchors designed for a variety of applications such as attaching to a metal or tile roof, attached to a timber or steel beam or attached to a cement substrate. All these variables including inspection, load testing and certification require a certain expertise that can be provided by Zokal
When inspections are performed by Zokal on anchor points, our technicians use calibrated load testing equipment. All points are tagged accordingly with date of inspection and next inspection dates clearly marked on the labels. As per AS 1657, compliance plates are fitted to every roof access point.
Horizontal lifeline systems are a permanent safety system requiring anchors to be installed into a structure so that a cable static line can be fastened. A movable anchor slide can be attached so that personnel can move along the cable static line attached to a fall restraint device.
Operators should be aware that their lives depend on the efficiency and durability of the equipment and proper inspection is their first line of defence against the hazards of faulty equipment.
Managers/supervisors should be aware that ignoring inspections of this life saving equipment by professional height safety inspectors is a breach of their duty of care and providing a safe workplace for their staff under the WH&S legislation and can have dire consequences.
