When a steel mill crew’s fall protection system inspection revealed damage to lifelines in its meltshop, the mill tapped LJB to help overhaul the system.

Each year, facility owners spend millions of dollars and countless hours designing, installing, inspecting and testing anchorages related to work at heights. Too often, the resources spent do nothing more than give the owner a false sense of security. In fact, the time and money spent load testing anchorages may be doing more harm than good—damaging equipment and distracting from other potentially higher risk issues. In this article published in Professional Safety magazine, LJB’s Rupert Noton, CEng, MIStructE, and Martin/Martin Consulting Engineers’ Andrew T. Emmons, P.E., provide critical information on anchorage testing, enabling you to enhance the safety of all workers at heights and make smart investments to reduce risk.
