Part 9 Fall Protection

Section 150.2 Removal from service

It is important that there is a procedure in place for ensuring that defective or suspect equipment withdrawn from service does not get back into service without inspection and approval by a professional engineer or the manufacturer. Any equipment considered to be defective should be cut up or broken before being disposed of. This ensures that the defective equipment cannot be retrieved and used again.
