At Spectrum, we ensure that at all times we are working to the British standards. When testing eyebolts, several factors have to be taken into consideration; the structure of the building, the correct position of the eyebolt, the potential free fall distance for the user etc. These factors are all determined by the BS 7883:2005 Code of Practice for the design, selection, installation, use and maintenance of anchor devices conforming to BS EN795.
All of our engineers are experts in the field and are fully trained in eyebolt testing, eyebolt installation and fall-arrest system. We are also able to provide fully bespoke solutions to any safety or access issue, from a simple fixed ladder to a complete fall-arrest system.
Of course, some clients do not wish for installations or works to be carried out during normal working hours. We are entirely able to adapt to individual client needs in this and most other respects. Contact our team today for further information and details of our programmes for eyebolt installation, eyebolt testing and fall-arrest systems.
Safety is paramount when working at height. Which is why eyebolt installation and testing is such an important part of protecting operatives. Eyebolts can be installed in a range of surfaces to provide safe anchorage, but they must be positioned in accordance with guidelines and regulations. They must also be inspected on an annual basis to ensure they are in safe working order for future work.
The revised Health and Safety Executive Regulations from 2005 specify that anybody that works at height must have the appropriate eyebolts or safety equipment. This is put in place to ensure fall protection.
Here at Spectrum, we are an authority on specialist rope access and working at height. We are also very happy to be able to extend our knowledge of safety in this area to our clients around the UK.
We understand that all our clients not only want to uphold the law but also want to ensure maximum safety and security for all of their staff and personnel. That’s why we offer our accredited service, including a detailed roof plan of the building and a hard copy of the report.
We offer a full range of services to meet all of your requirements for working at height. At Spectrum, we test and install eye bolts and safety systems for properties across the UK. Our experience and expertise in using these systems ensure the best possible installation, guaranteeing safe working and ease of use for any operatives using them.
There are a number of very good reasons why you should choose Spectrum to carry out your eyebolt inspections. These include:
At Spectrum, at all times we ensure that we are working to British Standards. When testing eyebolts, several factors have to be taken into consideration. First is the structure of the building. Second, the correct position of the eyebolt. You then have to take into consideration the potential fall distance for the user, as well as factors like other obstacles. These factors are all determined by the BS 7883:2005 Code of Practice. This governs the design, selection, installation, use and maintenance of anchor devices conforming to BS EN795.
All of our engineers are experts in their field. In addition, they are all fully trained in eyebolt testing, installation and the use of fall-arrest systems. We can also provide fully bespoke solutions for any safety or access issue you might have. These could range from a simple fixed ladder to a complete fall-arrest system for operatives.
We know some clients are unable to have works carried out during normal working hours as it may be dangerous or disruptive. We are flexible and able to adapt to individual client needs. Get in touch with our team to discuss your requirements, and we will work with you to create a schedule of works that causes the minimum of disruption to your business.
Spectrum provides you with some of the best-qualified people in the country to carry out works. We also provide a fully accredited service. You will be given a detailed report and roof plan of every building we work on, and this will be retained on file along with final certification. We do this so that every building can prove compliance with all health and safety codes and guidance.
We can install eyebolts into a variety of substrates such as concrete, brickwork and steel.
Installed eyebolts should conform to BS EN795:1997 Protection against falls from a height - Anchor devices - Requirements and testing, and the BS 7883:2005 Code of Practice for the design, selection, installation use and maintenance of anchor devices conforming to BS EN795.
Each eyebolt will be labelled with PPE identification tags, stating the individual eyebolt ID, category of use and the next test due date. Failed eyebolts will be fitted with ‘Do Not Use’ tags or permanently removed.
A Test Certificate will be issued on satisfactory completion of the examination and will include recommendations for any remedial work necessary. We also supply location sheets, which state the exact location of all eyebolts, both passed and failed.
If any eyebolts or safety systems require repairs before they can be signed off against British standards, we will carry out the necessary repairs.
British Standards require that anchor devices used for fall arrest systems should be examined at intervals of no more than 12 months, in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, by a competent person authorised by the manufacturer. If used for work positioning or rope access, they should be examined every six months.
Spectrum provided a top-class service from the outset, at tender stage, through to the completion of the contract. The works required the use of both BMUs and rope access. To this end they provided operatives with an excellent knowledge of their working practice and whom performed in a safe and professional manner with courtesy at all times.
Spectrum used a ladder-less gutter cleaning system which was able to reach our gutters approximately 12m above the ground. The ladder-less gutter cleaning method meant we didn’t have to hire a cherry-picker or scaffolding, which would have been expensive and time-consuming to install and use. Spectrum staff were able to show us video recordings of the inside of the gutters during and after the clean, and also emailed the footage to us once the work was complete. Spectrum have been professional, polite and thorough in their work and I would highly recommend Spectrum for their gutter cleaning service.
Spectrum are unique because of the range of services they provide. Their knowledge, how fast they respond to questions posed from residents and their can do attitude.
I am pleased to provide Lucian and his abseiling division at Spectrum with a reference for the Abseiling Services he has provided us with over the years. Lucian has conducted his business at Spectrum in a professional, honest and reliable manner. Lucian’s team have being efficient and very thorough in their work and I would happily recommend Spectrum for any of their abseiling services.
Depending on your needs and requirements, you can select from our range of eyebolt and safety systems services. These include:
This is the process by which eyebolts are physically installed and attached to the surface of a building. We can install eyebolts into a variety of substrates such as concrete, brickwork and steel.
When installing eyebolts, we make sure that every positioning conforms to BS EN795:1997 Protection against falls from a height — anchor devices — requirements and testing, and the BS 7883:2005 Code of Practice for the design, selection, installation, use and maintenance of anchor devices conforming to BS EN795.
By law, every eyebolt installed must be tested for strength and security at least once a year. Our team of engineers can carry out these tests, and also ensure that each eyebolt will be labelled with PPE identification tags. This will state the individual eyebolt ID, category of use and the next test due date. Any eyebolts that fail the testing procedure will be fitted with ‘Do Not Use’ tags or permanently removed if convenient.
After the tests have been carried out, a test certificate will be issued if the results are satisfactory. This certificate will also include any recommendations for any remedial work necessary. We will supply you with location sheets, which detail the exact location of all eyebolts, both those that passed and those that failed.
It is possible that some eyebolts or safety systems will require repairs before they can be signed off against British Standards. We will identify the offending bolts and their locations, and carry out the necessary repairs to ensure they meet British Standards.
British Standards require that anchor devices used for fall arrest systems should be examined on an annual basis. This is in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions for Mansafe testing. Eyebolt testing should be carried out by a competent person authorised by the manufacturer. If the eyebolts are used for work positioning or rope access, then line testing should be carried out every six months.
Here at Spectrum, we specialise in working at height and have the experience and accreditation to ensure all of your eyebolts are installed, certified and tested to meet the required standards, and to offer maximum protection for operatives working on your building.
