OSHA Tie Off Requirements Guide
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.
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.
