Not many commercial building owners are aware of the requirements for rooftop anchors, but they are actually common and very important in order to perform a number of services on the roof. Used in fall protection systems, they hold ropes and lifelines to prevent falls. They must also be installed properly and at the proper points in order to comply with OSHA requirements.
The agency’s strict regulations regarding the anchor’s installation, maintenance, and capabilities require that building owners must be in compliance in order for any contractors to perform work on the roof. So it’s important to have an experienced professional install and maintain them properly.

In order to perform any kind of work, roofers, window washers, and other contractors depend on the commercial building’s fall protection systems to keep them safe. They are set in place by OSHA, which enforces strict rules regarding the installation and maintenance of roof anchors. This requirement falls under rule 1910.27(b), which states that the owner of a building is responsible for having these anchors set in place and that they must support the weight of over 5,000 pounds. They will also be inspected annually to ensure that they remain in good condition.
For any building that requires window washing or work done on the roof, the owner must provide written proof that all anchors have been tested, maintained, and certified. It is also the responsibility of the employer to disallow any of their employees from performing this work until they have seen this documentation.
Our roof anchor services consist of the following steps:
- Reliable Roofing will determine the proper location for each anchor, cutting into the membrane and insulation to fit the size of the anchor.
- The membrane and insulation are removed and holes are drilled into the roof deck.
- The anchor is fitted into the cut out space and bolted in place using concrete bolts and epoxy.
- Insulation is installed around the roof anchor and covered with a layer of the roofing material.
