Fall Arrest Anchors, advice from Workcover

The on going discussions and confusions about AS/NZS5532 have led for Workcover, now SafeWork NSW, to release a Fact sheet that can be read in full below, clearly stating in black and white where they stand on the matter.  RIGCOM Access continues to take the position that we will only install anchors that have been certified to meet the new standard and commends SafeWork NSW for releasing this Fact Sheet highlighting the current situation.


This fact sheet provides advice on fall arrest anchors.

It includes information about AS 1891.4: 2009 Industrial fall-arrest systems and devices Part 4: Selection, use and maintenance  and  AS/NZS  5532:2013  Manufacturing  requirements  for  single  point anchor devices used for harness-based work at height under the Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation.


There have been numerous requests for advice as to the status of Australian Standards under the WHS legislation, especially in relation to these two standards.

This fact sheet has been developed to clarify the situation given the apparent confusion regarding AS/NZS 5532 and subsequent marketing of anchor inspection and replacement services based on assertions that the standard applies retrospectively.

Note that AS/NZS 5532 is a manufacturing standard; it does not address ongoing inspection, testing and maintenance and only addresses installation by way of specifying system design and installation information that is to be supplied with the anchors.


WHS legislation is performance based, focusing on achieving safety outcomes. Wherever possible it does not specify prescriptive means by which outcomes are to be achieved, including by not referring to standards.

The Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation places obligations on various parties in relation to falls. The obligation is essentially to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of persons, so includes those who would otherwise be exposed to a risk of injury from a fall.

This includes following the hierarchy of control. For managing the risk of a fall, the reliance on fall-arrest systems is well down the hierarchy, so they should only be used when other higher order controls, such as working from the ground, solid construction or temporary platforms, are not reasonably practicable.

Part 4.4 of the WHS Regulation 2011 provides more prescriptive obligations in relation to falls, and the Code of practice – Managing the risk of falls in workplaces (the falls code) provides additional guidance.


Compliance with a standard is mandatory if stated as such in the work health and safety legislation. Neither AS/NZS 1891.4 nor AS/NZS 5532 are mandatory standards in the legislation.

However, the falls code does include references to the AS/NZS 1891 series and ‘relevant Australian/New Zealand Standards’.

The anchorage points section states:

Each anchorage point should comply with the requirements of AS/NZS 1891:4 Industrial fall-arrest systems and devices selection, use and maintenance.

While compliance with a standard that is referenced in a code of practice is not mandatory, a court may have regard to it in determining what is reasonably practicable in the circumstances.  The code should be followed unless following another method provides an equivalent or higher standard of work health and safety.

Although not referenced, as it was not published when the Falls Code was being drafted, AS/NZS 5532 forms part of the industry knowledge that should be known and considered when making decisions about workplace health and safety.

As at September 2015 we also know that:

  • Some sectors of industry have raised issues concerning NATA certified testing requirements
  • In response to this, Standards Australia held a fall arrest anchor forum in February 2015 to clarify the industry concerns with the Standard.  No clear outcome was derived
  • In the August 2015 call for nominations, Standards Australia has received further proposals calling for review of AS/NZS 5532
  • Until this issue is resolved many manufacturers are yet to complete testing to AS/NZS 5532, and some existing products are failing the test
  • There have been no known instances of a correctly installed and inspected anchor that complies with the strength requirements from AS/NZS 1891.4 failing during a fall arrest incident

Given the above, SafeWork NSW advice is:

  • Product would be expected to comply with the strength requirements of the well-established AS/NZS 1891.4 until the review of AS/NZS 5532 is completed
  • While AS/NZS 5532 is under review, manufacturers will not be expected to produce product complying with AS/NZS 5532; however any complying product would be considered acceptable
  • The fall arrest systems being used with the anchors should provide energy absorbers, or other means, that limit the peak load on the harness connection and thus anchor during a fall to 6kN, as per the AS/NZS 1891 suite of standards
  • Once the issues are resolved with AS/NZS 5532, manufacturers would be expected to be supplying complying product within 2 years
  • AS/NZS 5532 is not expected to apply retrospectively to existing installed anchors; AS/NZS 1891.4 would be the relevant standard to apply
  • Inspection programs based on AS/NZS 1891.4, including annual load testing of chemical and friction anchors, should continue for all installed anchors
  • Where anchors are found to be damaged or not to have been installed in accordance with the manufacturers’ instructions – eg roof mounted anchors with insufficient fasteners or installed in roof sheeting that is thinner than specified – the anchors be made compliant with the manufacturer’s instructions, or replaced

The above can be found on NSW Workcover’s website:

AS/NZS 5532: 2013 Press Release from Forum.

With some questions being raised on the AS/NZS 5532: 2013, which has now been out since October 2013. Standards Australia recently held a forum with stakeholders in the industry who wished to point out issues with the standard and the need for it to be reviewed. The meeting occurred on 12 Feb 2015 and Standards Australia have since released a press release.

The key point to this press release is:

“To address feedback on application of the Standard, Jennifer Harwood, Senior National Sector Manager from Standards Australia, explained that Australian Standards are voluntary documents unless cited by regulation or called up in contract. Mr Chris Turner explained that there is no current WHS regulation mandating the use of AS/NZS 5532:2013. There are also no laws requiring anchors that do not conform to AS/NZS 5532:2013 to be withdrawn from the market. The decision to withdraw existing anchors needs to be made on a case-by-case basis as to whether they are safe, not whether they comply with the Standard.”

Although the standard is out there, according to the above statement there is no case for non conforming anchors to be removed from the market unless they are not safe. Ideally manufacturers and end users will want to have anchors that meet the new standard installed, in case in the future the standard is referenced. Some manufacturers are already producing the certification for their anchors to this standard, leading the way in the industry to continually try to improve it.

RIGCOM Access recommends, and will only install anchors that now meet the AS5532 standard to ensure our clients have the best and safest anchors on the market.


Below is the press release from Standards Australia.


Forum on AS/NZS 5532: 2013 Manufacturing requirements for single-point anchor device for harness-based work at height

Standards Australia held an open forum today on the joint Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 5532: 2013 Manufacturing requirements for single-point anchor device for harness-based work at height.

The Standard was prepared by the joint Australian and New Zealand Technical Committee SF-015, Industrial Height Safety Equipment, and published on 30 October 2013.

Following its publication, Standards Australia received four proposals in September 2014 to revise AS/NZS 5532:2013. After careful evaluation, Standards Australia found that these proposals required a clear scope and broad stakeholder support. Standards Australia therefore hosted a public engagement forum to discuss next steps.

The objective of the forum was for Standards Australia to engage stakeholders on the Standards development process, discuss issues and challenges with AS/NZS 5532:2013, identify a clear scope for potential revisions to the Standard, and to agree on the next steps.

Mr Bill Woods, Chairman of Technical Committee SF-015, gave an overview of the Standards development process, structure of the technical committee, and summary of issues from the four proposals. Mr Chris Turner, State Inspector Engineering from WorkCover NSW, spoke from the regulatory perspective while Mr Gordon Cadzow, Secretary of the Working at Heights Association, gave the industry perspective. Forum participants also had a discussion on key issues in test requirements and challenges in application of the Standard.

There was broad agreement among the participants that the forum was a first step for all stakeholders to agree on the key issues, and not a platform to consider solutions to the challenges.

Participants broadly agreed on a potential scope for future revisions to the Standard. The three areas identified for potential review were related to test requirements for manufacturers, specifically:

i) 15kN static load test.

  • The 15 kN static load test requirement is a potential area for review on whether it should apply to all anchor types and whether the load is appropriate.

ii) Drop Test (Dynamic Test):

  • In reviewing the 15 kN static load test requirement, the drop test (dynamic test) requirements should be reviewed accordingly, including the sequence of the testing and the drop height and/or weight in the dynamic test.

iii) Test bed:

  • The orientation of the test system is an area for review.
  • The committee can also consider including testing requirements for different categories of substrates.
  • Specifically, clause 6.1 can be clarified as to which anchor types need to be tested on a test bed.

To address feedback on application of the Standard, Jennifer Harwood, Senior National Sector Manager from Standards Australia, explained that Australian Standards are voluntary documents unless cited by regulation or called up in contract. Mr Chris Turner explained that there is no current WHS regulation mandating the use of AS/NZS 5532:2013. There are also no laws requiring anchors that do not conform to AS/NZS 5532:2013 to be withdrawn from the market. The decision to withdraw existing anchors needs to be made on a case-by-case basis as to whether they are safe, not whether they comply with the Standard.

Forum participants broadly agreed that the next steps for any potential revision of the Standard would be for a party to submit a proposal to Standards Australia, with a clearly defined project scope incorporating the three areas for revision as agreed upon in the forum, a well-defined net benefit case and evidence of broad stakeholder support.

Standards Australia reiterated its commitment for public engagement and consultation during the Standards development process. Standards Australia will carefully consider all proposals to revise AS/NZS 5532:2013 as part of its project prioritisation process.

Are your Height Safety, Rope Access Anchors Safe??

Major concerns with Height Safety and Rope Access Anchors is slowly getting media attention.

At every meeting the Working at Heights Association (WAHA) have, there are severe concerns within the group about anchors/systems that they have come across since the last meeting. RIGCOM Access is part of WAHA, with our MD Craig Myton, the Chairman for the installer category. Members of WAHA continue to find poor installations, with little or no documentation to support the install. Height Safety/Rope Access Layouts that don’t take into consideration; safe access and egress, plant and equipment that is installed, who is going to use it,  frequency of use.

Simply installing a few anchors on a roof, does not make for a compliant system. Simply requesting, ‘Oh I only want a couple of anchors here’, does not make for a compliant system. As pointed out in the report. ANYONE can go and buy anchors, or make them up, install them, and sign it off with complying with Australian Standards. But, do those people have the correct insurances? Are they installing a product that meets current Australian Standards? Are they accredited to a manufacturer and have carried out specific training? And by requesting ‘only a couple of anchors…..’ are you opening yourself, as the client, up to potential issues in the future? The WHS 2011 is clear about the responsibilities and potential fines, jail terms should something go wrong.

Below is a recent piece of the media coverage, by ABC, about the concerns and issues within the Height Safety industry.

About 800,000 people around Australia work at heights of more than two metres every day. They do all sorts of jobs; installing air conditioning units, to maintenance of buildings and cleaning services.

But there’s increasing concern within the industry that the equipment they’re using to anchor their safety harnesses is often unsafe.

As Imogen Brennan reports, workers fear their lives are being put at risk.

Installation of Rope Access Roof Top Rail System, PNG

Combined Rope Access, Roof Top Safety System

We were contacted by China Railways Construction as an accredited installer of Capital Safety products. They had won the tender for a project in Port Moresby, PNG. The tender required an Roof Top Safety/abseil system, using jockey arm’s to be installed on the roof, along with access hatches, walkways and ladders. There was also a requirement for the installation of a Capital Safety Unirail Rope Access system within the building, for cleaning of the glass curtain.

Working with CRC and the architect, RIGCOM Access were able to finalise the best layout and install the Roof Top Safety Access systems to ensure the building is compliant to Australian Standards.

The Roof Top Safety Abseil system is designed to be used with a Roof Top Safety Jockey to allow Rope Access Technicians to abseil over the edge of the building without the need for their ropes to put a loading on the parapet. The Jockey can be moved around to any point along the facade whist remaining attached to the rail system.

Whist the Roof Top Safety system has be predominantly designed to be used as an abseiling system. When the Roof Top Safety Jockey’s are in the storage position, the trolleys that attach to the rail system can be used as a Roof top Safety system. Allowing for safe access to areas of the roof should and repairs and maintenance be required.

The internal Abseil system, has been designed to access the internal surfaces of the glass curtain. Allowing for cleaning and maintenance of this facade. The system has been designed and installed to allow 2 Rope Access technicians onto the system. However if required this can be increased by adding additional trolleys.

RIGCOM Access has the experience of been able to plan, organise and execute Height Safety projects abroad, no matter their size. With the skills and technical knowledge to get the jobs done on time and in budget.

RIGCOM Access will guarantee to help you avoid the stress, accidents and potential heavy fines associated with Height Safety. Call RIGCOM Access NOW for your Free Roof Top Safety consultation 1300 893 230 or email contact us.

Height Safety/Rope Access Abseil Rail System, Sydney

Installation of a Height Safety/Rope Access Abseil System.

RIGCOM Access secured the 3 year contract with University of Sydney late last year and the first update that was required was for the install of a Height Safety/Abseil system on top of one of the University’s buildings.

With the required solution there were several possible options for the client. The first is we could have installed all anchor points. The issue with that solution is that some of the areas were close to being 2m from the edge. Because of this the required positioning of the Height Safety anchors would have had to be within reaching distance of each other. Which really would be impractical when moving around the roof top.

Another issue with just using anchor points is the structure we were installing onto was vertical concrete. And Anchor points can’t be in direct pull when used for Rope Access/Fall Protection.

The second option was the use of a Capital Safety Uni8 Height Safety cable system, installed directly onto the wall and anchor points into the steelwork. The only issue with this was that cable systems are not designed to be used for Rope Access.

The only real solution that met the required criteria of the client was to install the Capital Safety Unirail product. This Height Safety system was installed directly onto the vertical wall. Although in direct pull, due to the multiple anchor points the loads are engineered to be spread and therefore allow the system to be installed in this way. The Capital Safety Unirail product is designed to be installed in different orientations. Allowing for a greater range of installation situations. The system can either be installed for fall protection and or Abseil Use.

Along with the installation of the Height Safety/Abseil rail system, supporting Anchor points were installed into the structural steelwork and diversion anchors were installed on the building corners. Capital Safety Spirotech anchor were used for this application.

RIGCOM Access pride ourselves in providing our clients with the best Height Safety/Access System to meet their individual circumstances and situations. No site is too hard for our team.

RIGCOM Access will guarantee to help you avoid the stress, accidents and potential heavy fines associated with Height Safety. Call RIGCOM Access NOW for your Free Height Safety consultation 1300 893 230 or email contact us.

Height Safety System Inspections using Rope Access

Reducing costs to carry out Height Safety System Inspections

The yearly inspections of height safety systems is to be carried out every 12 months under the Australia Standards AS1891 and local NSW Regulations. (Certification schedules can vary from State to state) At RIGCOM Access we provide our clients on going support by carry out the maintenance and service inspection of their safety systems.

Corporate Air, had requested us to carry out these yearly inspections on the systems installed on the underside of the overhead I beam. We previously installed the systems to be accessed via rope access. Reducing the on going costs of inspection by not requiring a EWP to access the system.

As part of the yearly Height Safety inspections, we provide updated certification and documentation to our clients. Our systems are also updated and track the inspections carried out on every individual system/anchor. Our Systems help both us and our clients manage their height safety compliance.

When designing and installing Height Safety systems for our clients, we try to understand not only their current needs but also their on going needs. Ensuring that the systems remain easy to use, maintain and service. Keeping on going costs down to a minimum.

RIGCOM Access will guarantee to help you avoid the stress, accidents and potential heavy fines associated with Height Safety. Call RIGCOM Access NOW for your Free Height Safety consultation 1300 893 230 or email contact us.

Risk Reduction – Anchor points, no harness required. No yearly Height Safety inspections.

Designing Height Safety Systems to Reduce Risk. 

When designing Height Safety Access systems for clients we look at the hierarchy of control to work out which level of control is required. The best control is Elimination, to remove any risk of a fall from height or the need for someone to access things at height. The next is Substitution, provide alternative access means. Isolation, barricade of the services with guardrails so no risk can be reached and then Fall Protection.

With Air Conditioning systems requiring on going monthly inspections, the need for personnel to access roof top plant is greatly increased. As with most plant equipment they generally require additional chemical to keep them running. This increases risks due to manual handling of heady drums on potentially uneven surfaces.

Originally this site had anchor points and a access ladder with a safety line installed. However, due to the frequent access requirements and the need to carry the drums of chemicals for the plant and equipment, this was no longer a practical height safety access solution.

We recommend and carried out the removal of the access ladder with safety system, replacing it with a custom built access stairway. On the roof top, to provide safe access whist walking around the installation of walkways with handrail protection, where required. To remove the need to use the anchor points for height safety, guardrail was also installed around the roof top. The anchor points remained however as they can be used for Rope Access services to the facade.

The benefits of providing a higher level of controlled access, allows the for the access to the roof top, not just someone who has a working at heights ticket. It reduces on going maintenance costs as walkways, and guardrail do not require yearly inspections. Providing the right level is a balance between cost, frequency and future needs and uses.

RIGCOM Access will guarantee to help you avoid the stress, accidents and potential heavy fines associated with Height Safety. Call RIGCOM Access NOW for your Free Height Safety consultation 1300 893 230 or email contact us.
