Eye Bolt Installation – Testing and Re-certification

Vertical Access Ltd are leading installers of safety eyebolts. We also carry out testing and re-certification and have a team of experience and qualified engineers. Testing must be carried out by a competent and qualified person in accordance with HSE legislation.

All our engineers are trained to give expert advice on the fitting, location and testing of safety eyebolts.

The safety eyebolt provides a fixed anchoring point, which can be either external or internal on a building or structure. This will enable workers to attach a lanyard and safety harness to protect themselves in the event of an accidental slip or fall. These are often utilised for window cleaning and can also be used to carry out minor building repairs.

Eyebolts can be fitted for either work restraint, fall arrest or rope access. They are available in galvanised, stainless steel and white or brown polyester coated finishes.

All eyebolts are fitted with a PPE warning disk and can be installed into brickwork, concrete or steelwork. They conform to Class A1 EN795 and BS7883.

Periodic examinations are required at intervals of no more than 12 months for fall arrest and 6 months
for rope access. Each eyebolt will be tested to 6kN for fall arrest and 7.5kN for rope access and a test certificate will be issued.
