  • 5,000 lb. rated, OSHA compatible connection point swivels 360 degrees for safety and usability
  • Meets or exceeds all applicable industry standards including OSHA, ANSI and ASTM E488 Standard Test Methods for Strength of Anchors

OSHA Regulations

  • Single Point Anchors
    • 1926.502(d)(15) Anchorages used for attachment of personal fall arrest equipment shall be independent of any anchorage being used to support or suspend platforms and capable of supporting at least 5,000 pounds (22.2 kN) per employee attached, or shall be designed, installed, and used as follows:
    • 1926.502(d)(15)(i) as part of a complete personal fall arrest system which maintains a safety factor of at least two; and
