How To Install Roof Anchor Points

Whenever you are dealing with heights, safety needs to be the first priority. One little slip, one lapse of concentration can lead to devastating consequences. There have been a lot of tragic instances where families have lost a father, a brother, or a son due to falls from height at a work site.

If you think that you only need to worry about height safety when you are a few stories up, the statistics might shock you.

Half of the falls that resulted in a fatality over the last three years involved distances of less than three meters.

So before you even think about applying a coat of heat reflective paint, before you start to climb your roof to clean your gutters, take the time to establish whether you have a height safety system that is going to provide you with a safe working environment.

So to help you to establish a safe working environment on your roof, this guide has been developed to answer the following questions:
