Man-Safe-System and Eye Bolt Testing

It is a legal requirement that eyebolts are examined and tested every 6 months for rope access systems and every 12 months for fall prevention systems. CCWC have all of the necessary experience and equipment to accurately test and examine any eyebolt installation. We will produce a report detailing any faults, stating which eyebolts need to be withdrawn and which eyebolts are fit for use. All tested eyebolts will be marked in accordance to the relevant British Standards and the PPE Directives, detailing the date of the next required examination and the usage purpose of the eyebolt. Finally, we will provide you with a Certificate of Periodic Examination.

The standard governing testing is BS EN 795: ‘Protection Against Falls From Height – Anchorage Devices – Requirements And Testing’. That states that a fall protection system installed in accordance with the recommendations should undergo periodic examination by a competent person to certify that the system remains compliant and is also safe to use.

Man-Safe- Systems or wire systems are predominately on roof’s that has no edge protection, this type of system is used as fall restraint and must be tested on the Posts and the Swage alike.

Routine inspection and maintenance will help extend the functional life of your system and ensure that all workers who attach to it are properly protected as they go about their duties.

BS EN 795

Personal fall protection equipment – Anchor devices

The British Standards Institution has published BS EN 795: 2012 (August), following a revision by CEN/TC160.

The new version supersedes BS EN 795:1997, which is now withdrawn. It was prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association and supports essential requirements of EU Directive 89/686/EEC. Annex ZA (informative) gives the relationship with EU Directive 89/686/EEC.

A reliable anchor device is an essential component of any personal fall protection system. The scope and the requirements are based on the philosophy that anchor devices are rated to sustain the maximum dynamic force generated in a fall from a height by the mass of one person, including any equipment carried. The static strength tests are based on a minimum factor of safety of two.

Eyebolt Installation

The Right Way

If you have work to be carried out on your premises that requires the use of ropes, installing eyebolts will allow your workers better access to the work area. No matter the area it will be easy to clean, paint or build. If the work required is going to be carried out using safety harnesses attached to the inside of a building it is essential to have a fall prevention system in place to save a worker from falling from height.

It is essential that every single eyebolt is installed in a safe and professional manner. One error in an installation could cause serious harm to an individual. Whether you need a work access system or a fall prevention system, we guarantee that you will see the same high-standard of installation. The importance of the safe installation, inspection and testing of these systems cannot be underestimated. Any faults in the system can seriously jeopardise a person’s life.

Each eyebolt system and its installation will differ depending on the building structure and material, but with over 25 years of experience we won’t put a foot wrong. Please note that fall prevention eyebolts will only save a worker on one occasion. Once they have come into use they need to be replaced in accordance with HSE and LOLER standards.

Don't bother wasting your time, we have a commercial property to be professionally cleaned in Pontypridd and I have been calling them since 6th Oct and every time I manage to speak to Lee Clark I have been given different stories, first I was told that he was going to be away and booked the job for 25th Oct this came and went but no sign of him so I called again on 16th Nov, first he had forgotten completely about it however he assured me that he was going to a conference the next day and will call me back on Monday 20th Nov. I am still waiting for that call. I have no intention of wasting anymore time as this people have no intention of doing any work.

We contacted CCWC services because we had just got a new 25,000sqft Warehouse that needed cleaning. The new Warehouse consisted of 3 large warehouses knocked into 1 large Warehouse. Each Warehouse had white panels all the way around that had collected so much dust, grease & dirt. I contacted CCWC and I heard back from them the same day and we arranged a meeting. I was met at the Warehouse by a lovely gentleman who was super helpful and explained in details what they would do to achieve best results. When the quote was agreed a booking was made to have a team on sight to have the work done. The two gentlemen who came on sight to do the work were again so helpful, so kind and very good working guys. They managed to finish the job in a couple of days and the outcome was stunning. I was very shocked to see the huge difference the clean had made. The panels come up like new and all the walls/panels were dust, grease and dirt free. So I was a happy lady. The whole round service from the company was 10/10 from start to finish. I would highly recommend this company for any industrial cleaning like I had. I have certainly kept this team in my "save" file as I wouldn’t hesitate in using them again. Thank you for all your hard work. Karen

What is an eye bolt?

Eye bolts are placed usually near an opening like a window. Contractors lock onto these for protect them against fall arrest – that is to stop the contractor from falling.

Eye bolts are also used for rope access I/E Abseiling from high rise roofs. Abseilers use two eyebolts one as a main line and one as back up.

How often should eye bolts be tested?

For Fall Restraint the test is every 12 months, for Rope access they must be tested at least every six months.

How can I find an eye bolt testing company?

CCWC Services offer these services
