The CLUTCH should have a periodic inspection performed by a competent person at least once every 12 months, after any exceptional event(s), or if there is any doubt to the condition of the product. For each inspection, CMC recommends the Periodic PPE Inspection Form be completed, signed and archived for the life of the product. In case of retirement, ensure to render the device useless before disposal to prevent further use.
The CLUTCH User Manual, CLUTCH Inspection Procedure and CLUTCH Periodic PPE Inspection Form provided below are resources for detailed inspections. They are not exhaustive and inspection by a competent person is required. See the PPE homepage for more information on a “competent person.”
By performing a periodic inspection and signing periodic inspection forms, you are declaring yourself as a competent person and assuming responsibility for the implementation of the inspection processes and proper disposition of the PPE.
