10 Year Certification Requirements
According to 29 CFR OSHA 1910.27, roof anchors and façade access systems utilized as a rope descent system (RDS) need initial certification and testing prior to use and recertification once every 10 years. ANSI standards also mandate that suspended maintenance systems and anchors must undergo recertification every 10 years at a minimum. Applied Technical Services employs licensed professional engineers to oversee initial certifications and 10-year recertifications. Our qualified personnel have extensive experience testing and inspecting façade access systems and components. We can assess several types of roof anchors, including their structural attachment type, such as welded, adhesive, through-bolt, cast-in-place, and bolt-around methods. We also inspect, test, and certify davit systems and other façade access equipment. Our engineers can design, test, inspect, and certify these systems according to clients’ needs.
