WEBBING: Grasp the webbing with your hands 6 to 8 inches apart. Bend the webbing in an inverted "U". Look for frayed edges, broken fibers, pulled stiches, cuts, burns and other damage. Follow this procedure for the entire length of the webbing, inspecting both sides of the strap.
STITCHING: Verify the fall indicator stitching has not been broken. Wear should be minimal. There should be no frayed or cut fibers.
TAGGING: Verify the tag is present and ANSI/OSHA compliance information is legible.
HARDWARE: Check D-rings for distortion, cracks, breaksand rough or sharp edges. The D-ring should pivot freely. D-ring back pads should be inspected for damage. Check plastic for any cracks or distortions. Inspect the buckle for distortion. The outer and center bars must be straight. Inspect for loose, distorted or broken grommets. Webbing should not have additional punched holes. Grommets should not rotate. Buckle tongue should not be bent or distorted. Tongue should move freely. Check for sharp edges.
STORAGE AND CLEANING: Harness should be clean of corrosion, pitting or heat/cold damage. Harness should be generally clean, any contamination cannot interfere with the harness's serviceability or function,
