You are legally required to have fall protection equipment inspected under WAHR 2005, BS 8437 and EN 365 by competent persons. An annual inspection is the minimum requirement for most forms of fall protection equipment. The inspection schedule is based on frequency of use and the environment the equipment has been installed. KSE as competent persons will assist yourselves with assessing the inspection requirements of your equipment and appropriately schedule inspections.

Single Point Anchors (Eyebolts)
Eyebolt is a generic term for single point anchors. These permanently fixed anchors go under numerous names, eyebolts, D-rings or manufacturer names such as Pushlocks™ or Safering™. They are designated for single user use only and can be installed for fall arrest or restraint use. These single point anchors are widely used to protect workers from fall hazards adjacent to openings and categorised as Type A Fall Protection systems under BS EN 795. All our testing of single point anchors is undertaken in accordance with BS EN 7883.
Our engineers are trained to identify and test various anchors in accordance with manufacturers guidelines.
