Does your building comply with the latest OSHA height safety regulations?
Window washing companies, suspended maintenance providers and construction companies need proof of secure anchorages before working on a building above four feet. According to OSHA, building owners must inform the contractor in writing that the building owner has identified, tested, certified, and maintained that each anchorage can support at least 5,000 pounds (268 kg) in any direction, for each employee attached.
What does this mean for building owners and property managers?
As of November 2017, no anchor points can be used by suspended maintenance contractors using anchorages until the anchor points have received:
- A 10-year certification letter based on load testing the anchor points
- An annual inspection by an OSHA certified competent
