Roof Anchor Installation Services in Schaumburg, IL
Commercial Roof Anchor Installation
Experienced and trained in roof installation services.
Many large commercial and apartment buildings in the Schaumburg, IL area will have a fall protection system of some sort. But OSHA has recently announced a new requirement that all commercial buildings of specific sizes must have roof anchors installed and annually inspected to perform any amount of work on the building. These anchors are a part of the fall protection system that must be installed properly in order to secure ropes and lifelines.
According to OSHA’s requirement, the responsibility of having these roof anchors installed on the building falls on the property owner. But Reliable Roofing can provide this service for your building that will ensure it to meet all rules and requirements set in place by OSHA.

The Need for Roof Anchor Installation
Many contractors providing services to the building depend on fall protection systems for their safety. To have them installed properly and in the right places is critical to protect them from falling. In fact, OSHA’s new rule 1910.27(b) states “rooftop anchors must be able to support at least 5,000 pounds and they need to be annually inspected, maintained, and certified.”
These service providers will disallow any of their workers from performing any work on your building until receiving proof that the anchors meet OSHA requirements.
