Permanent Roof Anchors

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.

Professional Permanent Anchor Point Installation

Regular work on or from a roof can include maintenance, inspections, and window washing. For these and other tasks, a permanent anchor point system needs to be set up to ensure the work can be carried out safely and conveniently. Due to the need to safeguard workers and comply with regulations, these roof anchor installations must be designed and completed by industry professionals who are fully familiar with safety needs.

We understand current regulations relating to anchor point installation and the need for great care to ensure that safety systems always do their job. Accordingly, when installing anchor points, we will:

  • assess how they are to be used and where they will be best located
  • ensure the roof anchors have sufficient strength and stability for the type of use
  • wherever possible, locate an anchor point directly above the work area so that, should a worker fall, they are less likely to swing into the building or other objects
  • position the anchor so that, where possible, the attached lifeline will not run across a guardrail or parapet, which will limit its effective use
  • recommend appropriate anchor connectors and, if a lanyard is used, that it is the shortest possible length for effective work performance
  • ensure separate anchor loops are used for worker fall protection and to support platforms or other equipment
  • mark anchor points as being for fall restraint only, not for other uses
  • provide comprehensive training in the safe and effective use of the equipment.

Keeping Anchor Points in Good Condition

Permanent anchor points can be subjected to harsh treatment so it’s important that they’re inspected for damage before each use and again if they’ve been activated in a fall arrest situation. It’s vital that workers do not use any safety equipment if there are any doubts about its operational efficiency since lives depend on it.

Besides designing, fabricating, and installing anchor points and other safety equipment, we can undertake scheduled and one-off inspections and tests to ensure your workers are kept safe and you always comply with regulations. We will re-certify any equipment that is in good condition and repair or replace the rest.

Whether temporary or permanent, you need to be able to rely on your anchor points at all times. Don’t take risks, get in touch and we’ll ensure your workers are kept safe.

Customer Reviews

In the five years I have worked faithfully with Shine On, you have always lived up to your name! There are not too many gray areas in cleaning and maintenance; it is either top notch, or it is just not clean. And Shine On always delivers top notch! Your end product is consistently satisfactory.

Angela HeldmanVP, The Building Group

The gentlemen were excellent!!!!!! Thank you...

Melinda Burke

Your team was here last week installing the anchors in our building. I must say you could not have sent a better group of gentleman. They were courteous and professional from the beginning to end. They went out of their way to work with our tenants and their schedules. When they finished up in a suite it was cleaner than when they started. It could not have gone any smoother. There is no doubt I had the “A Team ” on this project.

Isabel Raehn-LantryThe Marcent Group

Just wanted to send my compliments to the two window washers that were on my terraces on Friday. They were so careful and thorough and deliberate. And two very nice young men as well. Windows are perfect and zero damage to my abundant plant life! If you have an avenue, please pass my compliments along to them and the company.

Rob MilneThe Parc Chestnut Condominium Association

I just wanted to tell you that Shine On is really starting to scare me. As a property manager I am not use to getting complements about window cleaning, only complaints. So what’s up with all the positive feedback I am getting? Andrew is great. He is friendly and professional and does an amazing job cleaning windows. My residents are loving this. Thanks for making my job easier.
