Inspection / Maintenance
New, Existing and Altered Fall Protection Systems (Annually)
Initial inspection of Roof Anchors as per the provincial regulations. Inspection report is stamped by a Professional Engineer licensed to practice in the province.
- Workplace Health and Safety Regulations under Section 82 of OHAS Act,S.N.S. 1996,c.7, O.I.C. 2013-65 (effective June 12, 2013), N.S. Reg.52/2013, Part 1.12(1)(b) “Inspection and Re-certification of equipment.”
- New Brunswick Occupational Health and Safety Act, regulation 2010-159, Section 145.2(3)
- -CSA Z91-02, Section 18.104.22.168 all anchor systems shall be inspected at intervals not exceeding 12 months. Section 22.214.171.124 The inspection shall include, but not be limited to:
a) A review of the design drawings to ensure compliance with current regulations, standards, and engineering standards;
b) An assessment of the system to ensure compliance with the engineered drawings;
c) An inspection of all exposed, visible, and accessible components of the system for signs of distress; and An inspection of all adhesive and expansion fasteners.

- 7.3 – Inspection and Testing of Anchor Systems,
- 7.3.1 – New Anchor Systems,
- 126.96.36.199 – All anchor systems shall be inspected and tested by a professional engineer, or a qualified person under the supervision of a professional engineer, prior to being placed in service to ensure compliance with this Standard, Clause 6.3* of CAN/CSA-Z271, and the design drawings.

Side Load Test and as per CAN/CSA Z91-02 and Z271-98
- 9 – Building and supporting structure
- 9.4 – Anchorage connectors
- 9.4.3 – Strength requirement – An anchorage connector shall
- be designed to resist application of 22.2 kN in any direction without fracture of any component or pullout, or both, from the anchorage; and
- resist a test loading of 11.1 kN without permanent deformation of any component when subjected to test loading in the direction(s) that generate the most critical effect on the anchorage system with respect to stability and strength.
Note: Where practicable, an anchorage design should include measures to avoid degradation of the weather resistance of a roof system as a result of load testing or use of an anchorage connector.
Fall Protection PPE
We provide inspection, certification and logging of Fall Protection PPE.
Permanent Ladders (Annually)
We insect permanent ladder systems in accord with ANSI Standard (A14.3 2008) and provide documentation and/or reports for your inspection. We can repair, replace or make recommendations for your permanent ladder.
We can certify Fall Protection Equipment that has been out-of-service or does not have documented inspections.
As part of a Fall Protection System inspection, we can treat corrosion to prevent further deterioration. In the future we hope to provide coating inspections.
We employ rope access technicians that are IRATA and SPRAT certified and adhere to these codes of practice.
More details to come.
We inspect, repair and install flashings and roof membranes.
NDT (Non-Destructive Testing)
More details to come.
Bolt Torqueing & Tensioning
We inspect and adjust to meet engineered specifications.
