Description / Abstract:

This Standard specifies manufacturing performance requirements, test methods, and marking, labelling and packaging requirements, as appropriate, for both fixed and portable single-point anchor devices exclusively for the protection of personnel against falls from a height for fall arrest, work positioning and travel restriction (restraint technique) in an industrial environment.

The Standard is applicable to anchor devices for use with equipment that conforms to the AS/NZS 1891 series and the AS/NZS 4488 series.

This Standard does not cover the following related critical issues:

(a) Assessing the site to complete the overall design and layout of the anchor system including ensuring safe access to the system, work methods that provide adequate protection for the tasks to be undertaken and safe egress from the system. These are the responsibilities of the system designer.

(b) The correct installation and on-site testing of the anchor points to ensure they meet the required strength requirements in their particular locations and substrates. These are the responsibilities of the system installer.

(c) Vertical rigid or flexible line systems and horizontal lifelines (covered in AS/NZS 1891.2 and AS/NZS 1891.3).

(d) Guidance on anchor installations, layout or use.

(e) Pole top rescue.

(f) Theatrical flying.

(g) Total restraint applications.

(h) Rescue operations.

(i) Emergency services.
