Safety Harness Checklists

Safety harness checklists are used to inspect fall protection harness equipment before use to determine if the equipment is in safe condition. Safety harness inspections should check for labelling, webbing, stitching, D-rings, lanyards, snap hook-ends and overall competency of the person using the harness. We have collated these free fall protection safety checklists you can use to perform harness and lanyard checks and general site safety inspections.

iAuditor is the world's most powerful inspection app and can be used to conduct paperless safety inspections on your handheld device. Download these free templates to use on the iAuditor mobile app.
