New Industry Code – Anchors, Lifelines & Rail Systems

New Industry Code – Anchors, Lifelines & Rail Systems

Released in July 2018 by WAHA, the Working At Height Association, this Industry Code is a welcome addition to the height safety industry.

Why has this code been written?

As many of you will be aware, the height safety industry has been, for the most part, governed by self-certification. As an industry, there has been a lack of clear instruction and definitions on the correct methods for system installation, inspection and use, and this can lead to unsatisfactory and unsafe results, causing major problems for those working at height. The code aims to offer guidance to designers, installers, inspectors, facility managers, building owners and end users in regard to safe installation and industry expectations.

The code covers permanent anchor systems, lifeline and rail systems. A broad range of topics are discussed, including clarification on the types of systems, layout requirements and system installation criteria.

What else does the code cover?

Additional subject areas that are featured in the code are techniques, design, assessment, commissioning, certification, documentation and handover. A full explanation of the hierarchy of control for fall prevention has been detailed as well rescue planning.

Who is WAHA?
