There are key inspection points for every hatch safety net.

Each factor is an essential part of the inspection process. Taking the necessary time for product inspection is easier than reacting to an accident. Key components of the hatch safety net to check to include:

  • Webbing
  • Hardware
  • Installation

When inspecting the webbing, it is essential to check that there is no fraying on the edges. Additionally, examine that the stitch is wholly attached to two pieces of webbing. Structural integrity is at risk if the stitch appears undone or is pulled apart. Do not cut the webbing of the net at any time. This will tarnish the strength of the net. Check to ensure that another team member did not cut the webbing of the net.

Additionally, ensure that the hardware is free of dings or rust. This is essential to see that the metal hardware is intact and will not snap or break. Ensure that the hardware is secure and attached to the opening of the maintenance hole. Finally, check that the cement or steel the net attaches to is in good condition. Crumbling concrete will not support an individual's fall.

Inspect your hatch safety net before each use. If there are issues with your hatch net, do not hesitate to replace it or get the next fixed as soon as possible. It is also beneficial to order an extra haul for backup. This will ensure productivity on sight is not slowed down if your net does not pass inspection. There is no way to predict when an accident will happen. Therefore, regular inspections and necessary replacements are vital for safety.
