The worker is responsible for visually inspecting the carabiner(s) before each use. During this routine inspection, the worker must note any signs of degradation, malfunction, or breakage. The carabiner will have to be replaced if any such signs are detected.
On top of this routine inspection, the carabiner must be inspected by a qualified person different than the worker. The frequency of these inspections varies according to the manufacturer. Some manufacturers require an inspection every 90 days, others every 180 days, or even yearly. These inspections should be performed more often if the carabiner is used in extreme environmental working conditions.
