Zokal Safety Australia are the experts on static line installation

Harness Anchor Points are designed to prevent serious injury or death by facilitating safe maintenance access to roofs, gutters, solar panels and mechanical installations.

Roof safety points allow workers safe access to roofs without the risk of injury or death due to falling from height.

Using roof anchors provides a secure attachment point for workers to attach lanyards, harnesses or static lines. In situations where guardrails may not be practical, using roof safety anchors in conjunction with a safety harness can be the best fall protection solution.

The type of roof anchor system used should be specifically created to maximise safety for each individual application.

The height safety system specialists at Zokal Safety are able to quickly identify the correct roof anchors and the correct configuration to suit your building.

Zokal’s range of services include:

Static line installation and installation of eye bolts and rope access systems.

Supply of harness kits and training

Confined space work

Adherence to Australian Standards AS 1891.4 and Work Cover

And Height Safety Certification

The requirements for the maintenance of height safety equipment are included in AS/NZS1891 Part 4 which covers the selection, safe use and maintenance of industrial fall arrest systems and devices designed for use in restraint, limited free fall and free fall applications.

Industrial fall arrest systems and devices include safety harnesses, horizontal lifelines and rails, fall arrest devices, and associated lanyards, connectors, anchorages and fittings – and maintenance covers the maintenance requirements and recommendations for inspection, storage, servicing and cleaning for this equipment.

There are many types of height safety anchors designed for a variety of applications such as attaching to a metal or tile roof, attached to a timber or steel beam or attached to a cement substrate. All these variables including inspection, load testing and certification require a certain expertise that can be provided by Zokal

When inspections are performed by Zokal on anchor points, our technicians use calibrated load testing equipment. All points are tagged accordingly with date of inspection and next inspection dates clearly marked on the labels. As per AS 1657, compliance plates are fitted to every roof access point.

Horizontal lifeline systems are a permanent safety system requiring anchors to be installed into a structure so that a cable static line can be fastened. A movable anchor slide can be attached so that personnel can move along the cable static line attached to a fall restraint device.

Operators should be aware that their lives depend on the efficiency and durability of the equipment and proper inspection is their first line of defence against the hazards of faulty equipment.

Managers/supervisors should be aware that ignoring inspections of this life saving equipment by professional height safety inspectors is a breach of their duty of care and providing a safe workplace for their staff under the WH&S legislation and can have dire consequences.

Note: For height safety equipment to remain effective, it must be inspected, tested and tagged regularly to ensure compliance is maintained.

To comply with current Australian Standards (AS 1657) certification is required on all height related equipment every 3, 6 or 12 months depending on the type of equipment

When inspections are performed by Zokal on anchor points, our technicians use calibrated load testing equipment. All points are tagged accordingly with date of inspection and next inspection dates clearly marked on the labels. As per AS 1657, compliance plates are fitted to every roof access point.
