575. Inspection of work equipment; inspection of places of work at height.

In relation to certain work equipment1 where the safety of the equipment depends on how it is installed or assembled, every employer must ensure that it is not used after installation or assembly in any position unless it has been inspected in that position2. Every employer must also ensure that work equipment exposed to conditions causing deterioration, which is liable to result in dangerous situations, must be inspected3 at suitable intervals, and each time that exceptional circumstances which are liable to jeopardise the safety of the work equipment have occurred, to ensure that health and safety conditions are maintained
