Who Are We?
Here to help you limit your liability on rooftop safety and make your job easier.
Wikstrom Engineering provides annual inspections and recertification for tie-back anchors, anchor points, davits and davit bases.
Ensuring Worker Safety with Anchor Inspections
Contractors should not work on a building without the proper processes ensuring the building and equipment safety (and rightfully so!). And that’s where Wikstrom Engineering comes in. We provide the required inspection and testing of your building maintenance system and tie-off points that keep your window washers and façade maintenance workers safe, and your building compliant. OSHA estimates that proper inspection and certification will prevent 29 fatalities and 5,842 lost-workday injuries every year, which are one of the leading causes of traumatic workplace injuries in the USA.
Falls are one of the leading causes of traumatic workplace injury in the USA. OSHA estimates that their 2017 fall protection requirements will prevent 29 fatalities and 5,842 lost-workday injuries every year.
What to Expect: Anchor & Davit Inspection
To keep workers safe while using building safety equipment, an anchor and davit system inspection from Wikstrom Engineering includes:
- The anchorages will each be inspected to comply with OSHA 1910, ASME A120.1, and IWCA I-14.1 requirements for annual inspections.
- If the anchors and davits have not been tested in the last ten years, we will inspect and test each.
- If we uncover any issues or areas of concern, we provide recommendations for any additional anchorages or remedial work that may be required to ensure full compliance with the new legislation.
- A Certificate of Compliance will then be issued, along with all documentation necessary for compliance with OSHA and local requirements.
At Wikstrom Engineering, we archive all building testing and inspection records, send reminders for annual inspections, and are happy to work under multi-year contracts.
