Tie Off Guildlines by OSHA

fall protection systems

Applied Technical Services is incredibly proud to be an industry leader in all OSHA tie off inspections and related services. As with most governing bodies, OSHA has some very specific requirements regarding how, where and when tie off systems and other safety measures must be used to help create a safe working environment for work at heights employees and contractors at all times. Workers must also be trained in the selection and use of tie off systems and these measures must be documented to help your organization maintain compliance moving forward.

Standard

OSHA standards and requirements don't just dictate what types of inspection services need to be performed and when, but they also have very specific requirements regarding exactly how that information must be recorded and made available upon request. Once ATS' inspection services have been performed, everything will be reported and certification will be included in the associated logbook.

Regulatory authorities also require that anchors be inspected annually by not only a qualified person but with the inspection date, the inspector's name, his or her signature and any other relevant comments be recorded in the building facade maintenance equipment log book.

OSHA also requires that any re-certification services be performed under the direct supervision of a registered professional engineer.
