Mobile Man Anchor Compliance Testing

Ensuring the safety of your workforce while working at height is paramount, and one crucial aspect of maintaining a secure environment is the regular compliance testing of Mobile Man Anchors. These portable, cost-effective solutions provide a safe alternative on roof areas where permanently fixed edge protection or safety lines are not feasible.

Last Updated: 7th March 2024

Why Compliance Testing is Essential:

It is not just a recommendation but a legal requirement to have your Mobile Man Anchors tested to meet British regulations. Failure to conduct annual compliance testing can result in an unsafe working area that does not meet the required standards, exposing workers to unnecessary risks.

Frequency of Testing:

While the recommended interval for compliance testing is every 12 months, industry bodies suggest a more frequent testing cycle, ideally every 6 months. This proactive approach minimises potential risks and ensures the ongoing safety of your work environment. Given the transportable nature of Mobile Man Anchors, it is essential to conduct visual inspections before each use to identify any immediate issues.

Mobile Man Anchor Compliance Testing Standards:

Adhering to British Standards is crucial in maintaining the efficacy of your fall protection systems. BS EN 7883 outlines specific criteria for Mobile Man Anchors, and during compliance testing, the following aspects should be thoroughly examined:

Loose Fittings and Fixtures: Check for any signs of loosening or instability in the anchor’s fittings and fixtures.

Dents or Alterations: Ensure that the anchor has not undergone any structural changes, such as dents or alterations that may compromise its integrity.

Shock Absorber Inspection: Examine the anchor for any signs of pulling on the shock absorber, ensuring it remains in optimal condition.

Corrosion and Cracks: Detect any corrosion or cracks on the surface of the Mobile Man Anchor, addressing these issues promptly.

Rubber Boots: Verify the presence and condition of rubber boots, as missing or worn boots can impact the anchor’s effectiveness.
