How Often Do Roof Anchor Points Need To Be Inspected?

Anchor points are a crucial component of any working at heights safety system, and need to be regularly inspected to ensure they remain in good condition.

We recommend anchor points be visually inspected at least every 6 months, and undergo thorough inspections by a qualified height safety inspector every 12 months. This helps identify any damage, wear or corrosion issues early.

Anchor points that pass inspection can continue to be used, while any defective components can be replaced right away. Regular inspections give you peace of mind that your anchor points remain compliant with regulations and safe to use.

Why is Anchor Point Re-Certification Important?

Re-certification of roof anchors and anchor point systems should occur at least every 5 years by a qualified height safety inspector. This recertification process validates that your system continues to meet strength, labelling, installation and other requirements.

Over time, factors like weathering, UV exposure, wear & tear can degrade anchors. Re-certification identifies any components that need replacement or systems that may need upgrading. It also provides you with updated certification documentation to prove your system is compliant.

Re-certification gives you assurance that fall protection systems remain safe for workers over the long term.
