PPE inspections

Inspections of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are absolutely essential to ensure climbers’ safety. They are governed by standard NF S72-701 of April 2008.

According to federal and departmental recommendations, you must:

  • Inspect equipment for wear and tear (through traceability of all equipment)
  • Check its compliance with standards
  • Have a replacement plan


ENTRE-PRISES can help you with this process, and carry out the annual inspection of your PPE.

This can involve setting up appropriate systems for management of your equipment:

  • Identifying an equipment manager.
  • Following the manufacturer’s instructions for use.
  • Marking equipment so that it can be tracked individually or by batch.
  • Keeping a register of all the equipment records.
  • Routine inspections at every use.
  • A comprehensive inspection at least once a year.
  • Providing information to users.
