In any active fall protection system, careful consideration must be taken in determining a suitable anchorage point for tying off. Anchor Points can be used in a variety of tasks and applications. OSHA and ANSI compliant, cost effective and easy to use, our tie off options anchors are being used in general industry and building maintenance applications around the world.
Lighthouse's permanent and temporary guardrail systems feature a modular design that takes the complexity and high cost out of roof edge protection for good. Systems integrate with existing ladders, equipment, and obstructions and provide durable, compliant fall protection for all standard rooftops.
Utilized to completely restrain workers from the risk of a fall or to arrest the fall by limiting the amount of force that is transferred to the worker and the lifeline in the event of a fall from the rooftop.
• Third-party tested for safety and reliability
• Engineered for multiple roof types including membrane roofs
• Can be mounted directly to concrete, steel, brick or stonework
• Stainless steel system with galvanized components
• Non-penetrative engineering for water-proof rooftops
• Fast, easy installation. The number of intermediate posts can be kept to a minimum.
Our mobile, deadweight anchor system is ideal for temporary use on roofs up to 5 degree pitch. The quick-to-assemble system features a central attachment point which raises the height where the arrest force is applied.
Unprotected skylights pose a significant fall risk and are one of the most common causes of falling accidents from rooftops in general industry. Lighthouse Safety's skylight system and skylight railing solutions provide compliant protection to keep roof workers safe and help avoid accidental falls.
Our Hatch Kits prevent falls into open hatches, and promote safe entry and exit of rooftop openings for workers while also providing a secure handrail for enhanced safety.
Features & Advantages
Lighthouse Safety offers a comprehensive line of fall safety solutions that include permanent and portable walkways and platforms. Our modular access system designs add versatility and reduce installation time.
Fixed ladder, temporary ladders, stairs and manlifts are all potentially safe methods of accessing a roof. A job hazard analysis should be performed to ensure the access can be done in a safe manner. If near the edge, protecting access points with additional guardrail around the access point to protect the worker once on the roof should also be considered. Depending on the height of a fixed ladder it may require additional fall protection. Ensure temporary ladders are used correctly and extend above the roof level and are not near a roof corner. When using a man lift to access a roof ensure it can extend to a safe place to access the roof before exiting.
OSHA allows for the use of work rules in lieu of fall protection on low slope roofs if there is no work or access withing 15’ of the edge of the roof. The employer must document, train and enforce this rule for anyone accessing the roof. Other fall hazards on the roof such as fragile roofs, skylights, and roof hatches may also require protection. This method protection using a work rule is the least effective method of protecting from falls and should only be used if other means of protection are infeasible.
