Having your roof safety anchors inspected is not only the duty of a responsible building owner; it’s also a mandatory requirement of most Occupational Health and Safety organizations. Although it is not a regulatory requirement, it is an essential part of a pro-active maintenance program and can help identify minor problems before they become major costs and potential safety risks to your employees. It’s also a good idea to have any additional fall arrest and fall protection systems inspected, like fixed ladders, horizontal lifeline systems, vertical climb systems, davit arms and bases.
A similar inspection must be performed following any major alteration made to an existing installation.
Following the inspection, the building owner must keep a certification record of each inspection and any tests performed on the system. The certification record must include:
These certification records must be kept readily available for review by authorities and by the maintenance contractor.
Safeguard maintains up-to-date inspection records of all Safeguard manufactured equipment and installations. Copies of the inspection data is recorded in the building owner’s/employer’s Inspection Log. The Inspection Log contains the necessary information to comply with all relevant Provincial, State and Federal safety standards and will reduce potential issues in the event of an accident. It is crucial that these documents be stored and readily available when required.
