Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a division of the Department of Labor,  requires that anchors be certified before use by employees using rope descent systems.


Why is certification necessary for a fall protection system?

After each Summit Anchor Co. installation, we provide an initial certification letter by a professional engineer (P.E.) certifying that the equipment meets all load requirements. Additionally, we include an annual inspection proposal to maintain code compliance.

Summit Anchor also evaluates and certifies suspended access equipment previously installed by the company itself or other anchor providers. If Summit Anchor supplies equipment but does not install it, we may certify the equipment as installed, provided the installers follow Summit Anchor guidance through the installation process, as well as provides specific documentation.

Upon completion of an on-site compliance evaluation and testing, Summit Anchor provides a P.E. certified report to the building owner or manager.
