Safe Working Using Permanent Roof Anchor Points
When work is undertaken on or from a roof on a regular basis, permanent roof anchors will be necessary to ensure the work is carried out safely. The aim of these anchors is to allow workers to secure themselves to a fixed point, so they are prevented from falling or that the length of any fall is limited and therefore injury is avoided.
Temporary anchor points are also available and can be set up in various locations where specific work needs to be undertaken. However, permanent roof anchors for fall protection present different challenges due to their constant use in one place.
