Harnesses should be visually inspected by the worker before each use and should also be inspected annually (or more often - as required by the manufacturer or your company policies).
According to OSHA 1926.502(d)(21): Personal fall arrest systems shall be inspected prior to each use for wear, damage and other deterioration, and defective components shall be removed from service. ANSI A10.32-2012 states: All fall protection equipment shall be inspected at least every six months after initial service by a competent person. ANSI Z359 states: Equipment shall be inspected by the user before each use and, additionally, by a competent person other than the user at intervals of no more than one year. And: Inspection criteria for the equipment shall be set by the users’ organization. Such criteria shall equal or exceed the greater of the criteria established by the standard or the manufacturer’s instructions.
