Expert Roof Anchor Design & Installation in DC, MD & VA

KEVCO Building Services can address your building’s roof anchor needs from design and fabrication to installation, inspection, testing, and certification. Each building — each roof — is unique; KEVCO wants to be your building’s partner in rooftop safety and compliance according to all OSHA and ANSI regulations.

When having exterior work performed on your building, first ask yourself these questions:

  • Does my building have a roof anchor system?
  • If my building has roof anchors, are they compliant with current OSHA/ANSI regulations?
  • Do I need to install roof anchors?

What Are Roof Anchors & Why Are They Important?

Roof anchors play a critical role in the safety of exterior service and cleaning teams. These attachments typically fall under the umbrella term of “fall protection” and are used to connect lanyards and lifelines to a secure point along the top or sides of moderate and large commercial structures.

Despite the important role roof anchors play, many buildings don’t feature them in their initial design, making addressing a roof anchor design and installation service important.

Proper roof anchors can benefit your business by:

  • Optimizing the safety of any crew working on the exterior of your building. We make the safety and security of all our team members a top priority. We want to ensure they have an effective and safe place to work at all times.
  • Providing safe means of exterior services: cleaning, renovation, reconstruction, or any additional exterior services.
  • Fulfilling ANSI/I-14 Window Cleaning Safety standards and all OSHA requirements.
  • Offering increased mobility and security. KEVCO and other exterior service teams can work and provide services at peak efficiency and safety.

Your employees are one of your most valuable assets. Protect them with roof anchors from KEVCO.

Urgent OSHA Update

This is the latest update in response to the recent OSHA mandates on roof anchorage requirements in OSHA mandate CFR-1910.27.

This memorandum acknowledges that “due to a limited availability of qualified persons to inspect, test, and certify anchorages for RDS use, OSHA is providing employers and building owners additional time to comply with §1910.27(b)(1), provided that employers and building owners can demonstrate and document they are exercising due diligence to come into compliance with the standard’s requirements.”

OSHA will evaluate on a case-by-case basis.

Employers performing services on a building may be affected when the building owners experience difficulties with compliance in a timely manner. OSHA will evaluate the extent of the contractor’s efforts to comply or not perform work at a property during the delay in establishing compliance.
