The three basic components of a tie off system are the full body harness, a deceleration device and an anchor point. Oftentimes, competent persons in fall protection will use improvised anchor points to attach to structures. This requires the user to essentially make an educated guess as to whether or not his anchor point is sufficient. One way to eliminate the guess work is to provide engineered Single Point Anchors by Sesco Safety.
Our qualified engineers will analyze the supporting structures and design a single point anchor specifically for your needs. Because our certified single point anchors are designed by qualified engineers, we can also design them for use on lighter structures that may not be able support the 5,000 lb. load for a non-certified anchor point.
A typical single point anchor consists of a d-ring attached to a part of the existing structure, an overhead beam, a column or even a piece of equipment. The d-ring can be directly bolted or clamped to eliminate drilling or welding.
The other important component of any single point anchor is to determine the safe working radius from the anchor and the calculation of fall distances to ensure the user does not contact a lower level in the event of a fall or be subjected to a hazardous swing fall. Sesco Safety provides a full ANSI Z359.6 compliant design package with training to ensure the anchorage is designed and used correctly.
Take the guess work out of your employee’s hands and contact Sesco Safety for certified single point anchors.
