Lifting and Working at Heights

SafeCheck provides visual onsite inspection and testing of all lifting and rigging gear.

We work to a variety of applicable Australian Standards including AS1657:2018, AS/NZS 1891, AS2625, AS/NZS 4488 and AS/NZS 5532. Our service includes:

  • Developing and maintaining electronic equipment registers (through our SAMA data management system) in accordance with Australian Standards
  • Testing equipment in accordance with Australian Standards
  • Asset serial number allocation for tracking purposes
  • Colour coded tagging for visual identification of compliance status
  • Design, installation and inspection of static line and working at height systems.

Our inspection capabilities include synthetic slings, wire rope slings, chain alloy slings, chain and lever blocks, work crew and lifting cages, and shackles. Working at height gear inspections includes harnesses, lanyards, static lines, anchor points, karabiners (coupling links), fall arrestors and descent devices.

All SafeCheck inspectors are certified technicians experienced in inspecting lifting equipment.

Each inspector is third party assessed and receives ongoing training and assessment on current Australian Standards.

We ensure all lifting and working at heights equipment is tested, including new equipment for identification of manufacturing faults or damage incurred during transit.

We develop and implement ongoing inspection regimes, typically every three months or less when equipment is subjected to severe conditions or the equipment manufacture specifies shorter inspection periods. We provide sling testing every 12 months in accordance with applicable Australian Standards.

SafeCheck also works with working at height system manufactures to design and install working at heights solutions for your workplace.
