Roof Anchor Points
Anchor points are a vital part of a fall protection system
Experts in Anchor Point Installation and Recertification
Roof anchor points are a common and cost-effective means of fall protection for roof-top workers in Australia. They provide a secure connection point for workers to attach their safety harnesses and lanyards while working on a roof. Roof anchor points can be permanent or temporary, and can be installed by professional height safety equipment companies. It is important to ensure that roof anchor points are in compliance with Work Health and Safety regulations and guidelines which include regular maintenance and recertification.

The Importance Of Roof Anchor Point Positioning
Proper positioning of roof anchor points is crucial for ensuring the safety of workers at heights. Anchor points must be strategically placed in areas that are easily accessible to workers and provide maximum coverage for fall protection. This can include areas near roof edges, skylights, and other potential fall hazards.
Incorrectly positioned anchor points can lead to a lack of coverage for workers, making them vulnerable to falls. It can also make it difficult for workers to access the anchor points, leading to confusion and improper use of fall protection equipment. This can compromise the safety of workers and increase the risk of accidents and injuries.
Anchor Safe’s team of height safety experts can assess your roof and determine the most suitable locations for anchor points. We will ensure that the anchor points are strategically placed for maximum coverage and easy access for workers. This will provide a safe working environment for workers at heights and peace of mind for employers.

How often do anchor points need to be inspected
The frequency of inspection and certification for roof anchor points is important to ensure compliance with the current Australian standards (AS/NZS 1891). All types of roof anchor points, regardless of their application, must be inspected and certified by a competent and licensed professional every 12 months to meet strict Australian height safety regulations.
However, some manufacturers may recommend more frequent inspections, and if the anchors are in regular use or in a harsh environment, more frequent inspections may be necessary. If you’re unsure about inspection schedules for your specific situation, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly staff for guidance.
Height safety compliance is a critical issue and it is essential that all inspections and installations are carried out by licensed professionals using high-quality products and equipment. Anchor Safe’s team of qualified and licensed certifiers can arrange scheduled maintenance and recertification to ensure your anchor points are always up to the job.
Why is anchor point re-certification important?
Re-certification of roof anchor points is important because building owners and employers are legally required to maintain height safety compliance, including annual recertification. These strict regulations are in place because of the potential risks of severe injury and death associated with working at heights.
Anchor points and the surfaces they are mounted on can be affected by natural elements and changes to the structure they were installed on. It’s essential to ensure that this simple yet potentially life-saving equipment is ready to handle the sudden and high-pressure strains of fall arrest.
Protecting your workers and yourself by ensuring your anchor points and other height safety gear is compliant and ready for use is vital. Speak to Anchor Safe’s experienced team about our recertification services to ensure your equipment is up to the task.
