Working at heights is a high-risk activity and falls from heights is a leading cause of death in Australia. Adequate height safety practices are essential for any work that involves heights and, in construction, fall prevention is mandatory where the risk of falling is two metres or more.

Height safety practices must be fully integrated on site. Firstly, the assessment of risks by an experienced height safety expert is essential to prevent fall-related fatalities and injuries. An overall safe working environment is critical, and the correct use of height safety equipment is imperative to save lives

To keep people safe when working at height, roof anchor points are required. The installation, inspection, and certification of this equipment is crucial to mitigating risk on a roof worksite and ensuring a building project is completed as safely as possible.

A further crucial step is to properly maintain fall arrest anchors or anchor points regularly by trained experts. It is a requirement of Australian Standards that all height safety systems have an annual inspection due to the highrisk nature of working at heights.

Equipment inspections is an in-depth process that takes considerable time, meticulous attention to detail, and the qualified expertise of certified installers to assess each safety point to confirm anchor points are in safe working condition.

If inspected anchor points are damaged and need to be replaced, JG Vertical can install new high quality anchor points which they can annually maintain and repair when necessary.

The importance of roof anchor points

Roof anchors are points or anchors installed onto a roof to which a range of equipment can be attached. They are used for: 

  • Arresting a fall 
  • Access to the external facade 
  • General rope access 
  • Working at heights

JG Vertical uses roof anchors to complete work on highrise building such as painting, waterproofing and caulking, flashing installations, and concrete repairs. Rope access is a great alternative to Elevated Work Platforms (EWPs) as it is efficient and reduces labour costs.

Roof anchor points can be used on all types of buildings including: 

  • New buildings 
  • Existing buildings 
  • Commercial 
  • Residential 
  • Strata 
  • Industrial

JG Vertical’s multi-storey painting services

It is a challenge to paint any property that is more than a few storeys high. With varying council fees and regulations ramping up costs, it often seems impossible to use Elevated Work Platforms (EWP) or scaffolding to execute the painting job. In this industry, cost-effective options that are simultaneously safe and efficient must be the priority.

This is where rope access (or abseiling) building painting services can come into play. Hiring and installing scaffolding can be costly in terms of labour and fees. As abseiling is a relatively inexpensive method to paint multistorey properties, it is becoming increasingly popular.
