According to Canadian law, fall protection lanyards must pass certification inspections every year.
Hercules SLR provides ASME certified inspection, testing, and certification services for fall protection lanyards.
More frequent service may be required, depending on the demands on the equipment.
Hercules SLR fall protection lanyard service includes checking for damage, distortion, and discoloration, checking that all the labels are present and legible, and determining if the energy absorber has been activated. Energy absorbers that have been activated must be removed from service and destroyed.
Nothing is more important that going home safe at the end of the day, so make sure your fall protection lanyard safety certification is up-to-date.
