OSHA Requirement for Roof Anchor Installation
To protect their safety, many contractors, including roofers, window washers, and other maintenance workers depend on fall protection systems. Now included in these systems are roof anchors. Having them installed properly in the right places is crucial to prevent any injuries. OSHA’s new rule 1910.27(b) states that rooftop anchors must be able to support at least 5,000 pounds and need to be inspected, certified, and maintained.
As a result of this, all contractors will disallow their employees from performing any work until receiving written proof that these requirements are met.
