Equipment Maintenance/Inspection Schedule

The safety equipment used for confined space entries should be inspected and have a function test carried out by a competent person immediately prior to each use. In addition, the following inspections are required/recommended under various standards and legislation.

Breathing Apparatus (Full BA and Escape BA)
All breathing apparatus and respiratory equipment should be inspected on a monthly basis and serviced annually. In addition, compressed air cylinders should be tested every 5 years and the breathing apparatus sets themselves typically require additional major services/overhauls on a 5 - 12 yearly basis, depending upon manufacturer.

Airline Breathing Equipment
Air supply to breathing apparatus should be air-quality tested at least every three months and more frequent when the air supply cannot be assured; in addition mobile air supply (compressors) should be tested whenever re-sited.

Gas Detection (Portable and Fixed)
Gas detectors typically require 6 monthly calibrations.

Oxygen Resuscitators and Therapy Units
Medical oxygen carries an expiry date - check the label on your oxygen cylinder.  Cylinders will require a 5 yearly hydrostatic test and valves require a 5 yearly service.  Resuscitators and therapy units servicing schedules will vary depending upon manufacturer, although they are typically required at yearly intervals.

Lifting Equipment (Tripods, Winches, Recovery Blocks)
Manufacturers state that lifting equipment should be serviced* annually and under LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998), lifting equipment used for man riding should also be inspected on a 6 monthly basis by a competent person.
* This is typically carried out by the manufacturers themselves or by our technicians in house (depending on the product) and is not to be confused with an insurance inspection.

Fall Arrest Equipment (Fall Arrest Blocks, Harnesses, Lanyards)
This type of equipment is typically inspected 6 monthly - inspection should not be confused with testing.
