This leaflet is mainly aimed at employers who use fall arrest equipment incorporating energy-absorbing lanyards made from webbing. It gives generic advice on inspection regimes for this equipment where it is used to provide protection against falls from a height.

However, many of the principles can also be applied to non-energy-absorbing lanyards and safety harnesses used for the same purpose. They can also be applied to similar equipment made from rope.


  • Introduction;

  • Legal requirements for inspection;

  • Inspection regime;

  • Scope of the inspection regime;

  • Examples of defects and damage;

  • Withdrawing lanyards from use;

  • Examples of lanyards that have been withdrawn.
