When clients require Tagging, we are are commonly asked two main Questions.
Q: What qualifications are needed to tag height safety and lifting equipment?
A: Periodical inspections are to be performed by a competent person: “A person who has, through a combination of training, qualification and experience, acquired knowledge and skills enabling that person to perform correctly a specified task” (AS/ NZS 1891.4).
At Integral Skills we have developed our own minimum skillset for inspectors which includes the follow Nationally Recognised training:
Q: How often should height safety and lifting equipment be tagged/ inspected?
A: AS/NZS 1891.4 suggests equipment is inspected 6 monthly, however if conditions or environments are particularly harsh or damaging the periodical inspections timeframe may have to be brought forward to a predetermined time frame depending on the rate of deterioration or damage that is occurring to the equipment.
Given the industry we work in, it is quite common to tag equipment quarterly using the ‘RUGBY’ system:
Red: Jan- March
Green: April- June
Blue: July- September
Yellow: Oct- December
All equipment is tagged with the correct colour for the quarter, added to a register and signed by a competent inspector.
