Anchor Points Safety Equipment & Fall Protection

Falling from a height is one of the reasons behind workplace deaths and serious injuries in Australia. Improper handling of safety equipment causes about 7000 injuries in Australia every year. And even though the injury is not fatal, the downtime from the workplace and injury recovery cost is approximately $ 104,000 per person. Thus, using safety measures in the workplace is very important for workers. Falls can occur in the following places:

  • Ladder access
  • Working on roofs
  • Stacking shelves
  • Unloading a large truck
  • Slip, trip hazards
  • At ground level - Fall into a hole, trench, service pits etc

Making workers aware of the certain falling situations and using safety measures to avoid such hazards is everyone’s responsibility


Working safely at height

There is a law which states that employers must ensure a certified and compliant fall protection system must be provided to the workers to protect them from a fall while working at heights. The roof safety system starts with the use of an appropriate and reliable anchor point. There are different designs, sizes, heights and features of anchor points. You must know which is suitable for the roof type to avoid risks from falls. Carry out a risk assessment of the worksite before beginning the work

Falling from heights

Distraction while working, slippery surface, imbalance of steps while carrying equipment or supplies can result in serious injuries or death of workers. Most falls occur because of the use of a defective ladder. The sideways movement of the ladder causes the user to be imbalanced. If the worker is carrying any equipment or supplies whilst climbing a ladder or working on a roof, it has the potential for serious injury or even death.


What is a Roof Anchor point?

Roof anchor points are usually installed on the roof so that lanyards, lifelines and other forms of tie-offs can be attached to the roof. It helps to prevent accidents from heights and plays an important role in your fall protection system. We provide both permanent roof anchor and temporary roof anchors. Often, anchor point are referred to as a fall protection anchor point. Our products are tested by a division of SafeWork NSW, to hold 15kn of load (approximately 1.5 tones of load). Workers must read, understand and work to all the dos and don’ts mentioned in the manufacturer’s user manual. Before installing the anchor point, it’s important to thoroughly check the roofing structure, materials and other safety equipment to make sure they don’t have any defects.
