Anchor Testing And Certification

Installing an industrial fall protection system is just the beginning of your safety obligations. Anchor testing and certification are what keeps your contractors safe. It is also what protects you and your company from liability should something happen.

There are numerous and often confusing measures to ensure full compliance with industry standards. Trust our qualified team to guide you diligently through the anchor testing and certification process so that your time and energy will be spent on creating value for your property.

Our Expert Process

Ensuring your full safety and compliance with all OSHA standards and requirements is our specialty. The steps to keeping your building in compliance are as follows:
  1. Visual Inspection
  2. Load Testing
  3. Certification
We start with a visual inspection, move to a thorough load testing stage, and finish up with official certification of compliance. Each of these metrics is essential for a thorough and correct evaluation of compliance and safety.

Visual Inspection

This is the first step to becoming 100% safe and compliant. A visual inspection is required annually by a competent person who is not the user or owner of the anchor system.
This step is required because it can reveal complex problems that may require addressing before moving forward with load testing.
Our staff has years of experience evaluating buildings and can ensure that the inspection is thorough, complete and keeps you in compliance.

Load Testing

The load testing portion of any inspection is essential, as it provides evidence that the systems in place are compliant, operational, and safe. Your property will have the guidance of professional engineers registered in your state for this crucial step.
Load testing starts with a point-by-point inspection of anchor points. Every weight-bearing spot must be free from damage, danger, complications, or even simple things like rust. Next, we then test the load-bearing abilities in the presence of a professional engineer registered by the state. Finally, we certify that each anchor point is viable, safe, and compliant.

Certification

Following visual inspection and load testing, an anchor system can be considered safe to use. Companies receive a full certification from us, as well as detailed documentation of the testing process.

At this point, your certification can be used to ensure that you are not liable in the event of an accident involving property damage. It also ensures that you will not have to pay fines due to non-compliance with safety standards.

Finally, you will rest easy knowing that the safety and wellbeing of your contractors and company are taken care of and your risk has been mitigated.

Easily Meet Compliance Requirements

There are several requirements that a complex industrial fall protection system must pass to be operational. Our employees are fast, efficient, and thorough in evaluating and testing these requirements.

Damage to property and assets can become costly in the event of an accident, which is one reason why frequent inspections are worth the investment. Along with damage to equipment, your anchor system can carry workers. Human passengers mean that the risks in the event of an accident are far greater than other safety concerns.

The rigorous safety standards may be intimidating as a building owner, but our team can easily guide you through the process of achieving compliance. Whether you’re worried about meeting the ASC standards or overwhelmed by how many boxes you have to check for OSHA, we have the skills to simplify and streamline your safety compliance.

ASC I-14 Window Washing Safety Standard

Since 2001, this standard has been taking the safety of the window cleaning industry to the next level. Meeting this standard via a thorough inspection and certification is required annually.
ASC I-14, as opposed to other standards, is specifically in regards to window washing. It is designed to protect the employees and assets of these companies through rigorous standards.
Our team can ensure that you have detailed safety reports to keep for your records. These can be useful for the sake of showing your inspection history each year upon updating.

OSHA Requirements

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) directly defers to the ASC standards in its General Duty Clause.
OSHA also includes a rigorous checklist of anchor system standards that have to do with the efficacy of parts like:
  • The anchorage or point of attachment
  • Body harnesses and belts
  • Snaphooks, positioning systems, and lanyards
  • Deceleration devices and lifelines
