ANCHOR POINTS SYDNEY - FOR FALL PROTECTION AND ROPE ACCESS
Professional Installation and Certification of Anchor Points
What are roof anchor points?
An anchor point is an essential element in height safety. Used for rope access, anchor points are a vital part of fall arrest systems on the roofs and facades of buildings and other high structures. Anchor points are used to firmly connect to things like lanyards, lifelines, and other forms of tie-off, which make sure a person does not fall when working at heights. Anchors on a roof vary from a simple D-ring connection to more complex roof anchor systems.
Why are anchor points so important?
Anchor points or harness points are very important because any work conducted on high buildings or structures is potentially dangerous. As such, you must have the proper height safety products to ensure no one suffers serious injury. Falls from heights are the second most common cause of death at work. Height safety is instrumental in creating a safe workplace.
Having permanent harness points in place is also important for many buildings and properties as they allow for easy servicing (such as high rise window cleaning). Anchor points are required to meet your obligations under work health and safety, and occupational health and safety.
Legislation: Work Health and Safety Act
Under the Work Health and Safety Act, anywhere that work is done within 2 metres of an unprotected edge that could result in a fall of 2 metres or more, fall protection is required. Anchor points are a crucial part of fall protection. Does your building comply with the new regulations? We can complete a comprehensive height safety audit for your Sydney-based organisation.
How do anchor points work?
Anchor points work in several ways to protect people and structures. For example:
- when someone falls, the anchor point/s absorbs the weight while retaining their strength
- anchor points reduce the load on the structure and the person attached to the anchor
Points absorb energy
The new style of anchor points has a special energy-absorbing ability. This helps ensure people using them are safe in the event of an accident.
Easy to install
Our anchor points are easy to install, causing minimal, if any, impact to the structure of a building. Anchor points can be attached to many different surfaces, including:
- metal roof sheeting
We use anchor points that are designed to blend in with existing buildings. We can place them so that they have minimal impact on the façade and visual appearance of a building or structure. Anchor points are small and difficult to see from far away.
