Fall Protection Inspection Series: Inspecting Your Synthetic SRL, Lanyard

Your fall protection equipment keeps you safe, but only if it is in the proper working condition. If one piece fails the results could be catastrophic. In this series we show you how to inspect your fall protection gear. In this video we look at Synthetic SRLs and lanyards and what removal criteria looks like. Inspecting your SRL and lanyard before each use can prevent death, injury, or in the very least an OSHA citation.

Come back for the next episode of the Fall Protection Inspection Series where we show you removal criteria for wire rope SRLs and lanyard.
