What documentation should I receive upon handover of my height safety systems?
The Working at Height Association stated the below in November 2016:
How does this affect the inspection process?
The number of reports from Installer Category members on the sighting of incorrectly installed single point anchors has increased dramatically
in the last few months.
Common complaints include the anchor not being fixed correctly - and exactly in line with - manufacturers instructions. Incorrect fixing includes both the use of insufficient fixing points
on the anchor or using an incorrect fixing method
(e.g. tech screws instead of rivets).
It is absolutely critical
that the system owner or facility manager retains the system file. This file should include details of the planned work to be undertaken on the system, the work method statement on which the layout design was based and any design calculations. The file should also include the manufacturers fixing instructions and the test certificates provided by the system installer.
It is also good practice for the system owner to maintain system usage records.
The system file needs to be made available to any inspector / re-certifier requested to inspect and recertify the system. The re-certification process cannot effectively be done correctly without the system file information.
