We inspect and certify fall protection systems and perform testing of fall arrest systems
Inspections & Certifications - Forensic Investigations - Testing
Our extensive experience coupled with training by several manufacturers as installers of their systems, plus our ability to analyze and test ANY system to determine its behavior allow us to:
Inspect all your systems
Verify that they are strong enough for the intended purpose
Compare the design to the requirements of the latest standards such as ANSI Z359.6 or CSA Z259.16
Assess and advise whether the level of risk remains acceptable when systems do not meet applicable requirements
Strive to engineer temporary repairs or impose acceptable working restrictions before leaving the site when serious flaws are discovered. This is so you can keep operating until the system can be repaired, serviced or improved.
Tie-Back and lifeline Anchorage Systems
Our firm is fully qualified to inspect and certify roof anchorage systems in accordance with the CSA Z271 and CSA Z91 requirements in Canada. We have engineered close to 200 new and retrofit installations of these kinds of systems, and are equipped to proof load these anchorages as required by the standards.
Our experience and understanding of engineering and physics allows us to:
Design, conduct, oversee testing programs and re-enactments of incidents
Properly asses and compensate for and justify deviations from an exact simulation of a dangerous incident
Create computer models to investigate Fall Protection System behaviors without doing actual testing that can be verified by only a few tests rather than conducting an extensive program exploring many possible scenarios
