Fall Protection and Anchorage Testing and Certification

Keeping contractors safe on great heights should be one of the top priorities of anyone. When dealing with human lives, there’s a very small margin of error, and no unnecessary risks should ever be taken. That’s why regular inspections and frequent recertification of safety equipment like fall protection anchors are mandated by OSHA and why they’re so important. Fall protection anchorages can become damaged with time and new regulations can be introduced, making it necessary to regularly go over existing fall protection measures to ensure they’re still safe and up to date. Without regular inspections, you could be putting human lives at risk and yourself at risk of lawsuits. When your fall protection anchorage needs testing, choose the USA’s top fall protection company, Shine on Anchors. Our certified experts perform thorough inspections of roof anchorage connectors and other fall protection equipment and issue helpful inspection reports and valid certifications that give you peace of mind and ensures compliance with all safety regulations.

OSHA Complaint Roof Anchor Load Testing

According to OSHA, fall protection systems should be inspected and recertified as safe once every 12 months. Not following these guidelines can result in fines, alongside generally being an unsafe and unwise decision. You can be held liable for any accidents that occur due to missed inspections or lacking safety standards. However, navigating these guidelines and requirements can be complicated. OSHA describes a rigorous checklist of standards for anchor systems, including checking the efficacy of the point of attachment, body harnesses and belts, snap hooks, positioning systems, lanyards, lifelines and deceleration devices. The ASC I-14 Window Washing Standard has to do specifically with window washing, but it’s equally important to meet. These standards also demand that the person performing the inspection is not the owner or operator of the system, which is why it’s crucial to bring in an outside company like the Shine On Group to ensure the inspection is valid and legal.

What to Expect from Your Anchorage Testing Inspection

Your inspection will start with a visual inspection where we look over any damage to the anchors and assess whether cracks, rust and other damage are impacting their function. We will then perform a thorough roof anchor load testing to ensure that the anchors are still capable of holding the weight they are supposed to. When it comes to a fall protection anchor, load testing is essential to determine whether the anchor is 100% safe and compliant. This step starts with a thorough inspection of anchor points to check all weight-bearing spots are free from damage and complications, after which a professional engineer will test the load-bearing capabilities. After your inspection, you will receive a thorough inspection report and a valid certificate for the safety of your anchor system.

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.
