Anchor Point Inspections

Our Experience with Anchor Point Inspections & Servicing

Roof anchor points are invaluable when it comes to working at heights. Each year in Australia, falls from heights lead to approximately 26 worker fatalities and 7,700 injuries in Australia. Generally in tandem with height safety PPE, anchor points are a foundational element of basic fall prevention and protection. As such, regular anchor point inspections are crucial to maintaining the safety of all those working at heights.

ANCHOR POINT INSPECTIONS FAQ

How Often Do I Need Anchor Point Inspection Services?

In New South Wales, it is advised that anchor point inspections are performed every six months. While state regulations do not explicitly state that bi-annual inspections are required by law, SafeWork Australia considers every six months to be an accurate guideline for how often anchor point inspection services need to be conducted.

It’s important to note that with height safety compliance, all inspections and installations should be carried about by a licensed professional such as Newcastle Safety Servicing.

Why Are Anchor Point Inspection Services So Important?

Arguably the most crucial element of height safety, roof anchorage and anchor points are designed to prevent a worker from experiencing an injury from a fall. If anchors and static lines are not routinely inspected and maintained, they can fail and put workers at risk of serious injury or even fatality.

Routine anchor point inspections prevent height safety equipment from failing due to negligence, deterioration, obstructing elements and weather. Regular assessment, testing and inspection of anchor points provide workers and worksites with the confidence that all prevention methods are put in place to protect those working at heights.

An inspection involves establishing whether anchorage points and safety lines can perform as intended. Anchor point loads are significant (around 2 tonnes per anchorage point), inspections involve assessing the structure, fixing of the anchor and condition of the equipment. Load tests are conducted for certain types of anchorages, and cables are re-tensioned on safety lines. After the inspection, every anchor point is tagged, and date stamped, like fire equipment, and compliance plates updated to demonstrate currency.
