Regular Inspections Prevent Accidents
Applied Technical Services performs 5-year fall protection certifications to ensure client equipment remains effective and safety-compliant. Exterior commercial building maintenance and inspection require façade access, which constitutes elevated work area that requires a fall protection system to comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Association’s (OSHA’s) safety regulations. A comprehensive fall protection plan often involves a variety of elements ranging from roof anchors to ledge railings, each working to address different factors that could contribute to a workplace fall. Like any other safety measure, these elements require periodic assessment to ensure they have not sustained damage from corrosion or service-related wear that would hinder them from preventing an accident or injury. To ensure their fall protection system meets government requirements, clients turn to consulting engineering services like ATS to perform their 5-year fall protection inspections.
Our Fall Protection Certification Expertise
OSHA and ANSI standards outline the correct inspection intervals and procedures to ensure the safety of employees and operators. Many manufacturers of elements such as anchor points or BMU track systems outline inspection requirements at five-year intervals to assess potential issues. Our team of licensed Professional Engineers oversees the inspection efforts, keeping an eye out for any indications that require attention. Their reports outline any repair or maintenance actions required to achieve compliance with relevant OSHA and ANSI standards.
