Olympic Rings

The Olympics are over. Records were set and recorded. Which reminds me... Have you been keeping track of your fall protection records? Did you know that OSHA can fine you for not keeping track of inspection records? Well, they can, and they will.

For some reason, OSHA doesn't buy the... "Oh yeah, we inspect these all the time" bit without documentation. And in most cases, it is not something you can fake. When they ask you for your records you better have them... quickly (cocktail napkins don't count).

Look, I trust that you're taking the time to inspect your gear on a daily basis, and something a bit more formal twice a year, but if you don't keep up with it... it never happened.

Don't make your inspections a waste of time. Make sure you're recording them.
