OSHA Regulations for Davit Systems
Davit systems support platforms over the edge of building façades so workers can safely perform essential maintenance, repair, and cleaning operations. Safety is a top priority when working at heights, which is why Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) upholds several regulations for davit system design, construction, maintenance, and use. OSHA davit system requirements include certification, testing, and inspection intervals.
Davit systems need certification before use, as well as recertification every ten years. Davit systems with chemically bonded, adhesive, or epoxy anchorages require recertification every five years. All davit systems must undergo annual visual inspections. Applied Technical Services performs inspections to help clients meet regulated standards. Compliance with these OSHA standards prevents accidents, protects investments in equipment, and keeps personnel safe.
