Comprehensive Test & Inspection for Eyebolts and Abseil Anchors
At Eurosafe Solutions, our aim is to deliver the best test and inspection service of height safety equipment in the UK. We strive to meet this by continuous investment in training and service delivery.
Abseil anchors are just one category of height safety equipment which we test, inspect and certificate. As a leader within the height safety industry, we continually review latest legislation, regulations and approved code of practices.
Abseil Anchor Testing Regulations
There are clear guidelines outlining the need for inspections and the frequency that these must be carried out to remain compliant. Our inspection engineers take great pride and care in the inspections they complete to ensure original installation guidelines are followed. With or without documentation, our experienced team can carryout their test and inspections to the latest standards in place. We will ensure that your abseil anchors comply and ensure safe for use.
Abseil Anchors should be inspected and tested at least every six months as per the lifting operations and lifting equipment regulations 1998, (LOLER).
An examination scheme This would consist of, (but not limited to) the following:
• Examination of the eyebolt for correct marking
• Surrounding structure inspected for damage or cracks
• Check, as far as possible that positioning requirements are met.
• Anchor device can be accessed before the user is at risk
• That the structural anchor is of an approved type and appropriate to the structure.
• Physical examination where applicable
• Up-dating of signage as applicable
Following a successful test, a full report detailing our findings would be issued along with certificates for each individual asset.
