Roof Anchors And Fall Protection

Work-related falls kill or injure over 100,000 workers annually, in the United States alone. If workers are dispatched to heights of six feet or more above the ground, employers must ensure that a fall protection system is in place. No system is complete without the installation of permanent or temporary roof anchors, which are the most widely used component of a fall arrest system. Safety harnesses or lanyards attach to these anchors, which are designed to withstand significant force, if falls occur.
