Rooftop Anchor Installation in Lisle, IL and Northwest Suburbs
Rooftop Anchor Installation
Experienced and licensed roofing contractors for rooftop anchor installations.
All commercial buildings, apartment buildings, and high rises are fitted with fall protection systems on the roof that include roof top anchors. The fall protection system is put in place for rooftop workers to use for their safety and they use the rooftop anchors to secure their ropes and lifelines. That makes it very important for roof anchors to be installed properly and in the right areas of the roof to provide protection against falls. OSHA has very strict requirements in place to ensure that roof anchors are installed properly and that they are inspected annually to test their capabilities.
According to OSHA, the responsibility of ensuring that rooftop anchors are installed and maintained properly falls on the owner of the property.
