• 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.

Deadweight Lifeline Systems

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.

Risk Assessment

How do we assess risk on the Rooftop?

Our fall protection experts perform a critical analysis of the entire rooftop surface to identify the hazards where workers are exposed to the greatest risk. This ensures that the most dangerous areas are protected immediately with state-of-the-art fall protection systems and OSHA-compliant solutions.

We assess risk based on two factors:
1) Severity of Injury: The severity of a fall-related injury is always assumed to be life-threatening.

2) Likelihood: The greatest predictor for the likelihood or an accident occurring is to review the frequency of exposure to the hazard on the roof.

RISK = SEVERITY X LIKELIHOOD

Fall Protection Requirements and Solutions for Rooftop Work

March 15, 2023
The safety of personnel handling rooftop work is one of the biggest concerns for several industries, including construction, maintenance, telecommunications, emergency services, and solar system installation.

Rooftop Safety FAQs

What are safe methods to access a roof?

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.

Do I need fall protection on a roof?

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.
