Eyebolts are a brilliant solution to fall protection. When correctly installed, eyebolts can support a lot of weight and are a great solution when lifting heavy weights, hanging weighty objects or cabling. But how do you know if your eyebolts are secured properly, and how do you know the material they’re installed in to will not give way at a moment’s notice?
These are concerns that every company involved in construction must address. All companies must adhere to the Health and Safety Regulations as set out by the Government. If you unknowingly have a faulty eyebolt and something were to occur, injuring one of your workers, the consequences to your business simply don’t bear thinking about.
The human cost will be the first to be counted depending on severity, but so would the financial cost. A compensation payout would hit your company hard at a time when you cannot feasibly afford it, and you could also possibly be fined for negligence. The cost to your reputation would probably be the biggest cost of all, and something that money cannot buy back.
With this in mind, isn’t it worth checking the suitability of your eyebolts now with a company that knows what they’re doing? At Heightsafe Systems, we examine each of your eyebolts and test them with special equipment. They will then be retested and, when satisfied, we will award you with a test certificate to say they all meet optimum regulation standards.
Each eyebolt will get a unique ID and we will schedule a time to do it again in 12 months’ time.
