SPEED Runner passes RfU

On 19 March 2010 the European Commission has decided to modify the EN 353-1 (type fall arresters including a rigid anchor line). The change ensures that fulfilling the EN 353-1 conformity alone does not longer cause a presumption of conformity. Just because a product complies with EN 353-1, it does not mean that the CE mark could be added and that it is possible to place the product on the market. Therefore further requirements must be met to ensure that the EN 353-1 and the requirements of the PPE Directive are fulfilled. Read more

Withdrawal from service and inspection of PPE

Withdrawal from service and inspection of PPE

Along BGR 198 the operating time of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is dependent on the conditions of use where the information in the user manuals has to be considered. Under intense usage the maximum operation time usually will not be reached. Harnesses and ropes made of chemical fibres underlie a certain aging even without use, for example because of ultra-violet rays or other influences from climate and environment. Additionally the diluents in the textile material of the PPE can volatilise in time and the equipment can become brittle. This can lead to partly invisible damages of the material.  Read more
