Window Washing Anchors vs. Fall Protection Anchors


If a building has fall protection anchors permanently mounted, can you use them for window washing? Can you, inversely, use window washing anchors for fall protection?

The answer to both questions is “NO!”

Charlie Garcia from Guardian Fall Protection explains why in his blog.

There’s also a link on that post to a downloadable pdf “Window Washing vs. Fall Protection Anchorages Fact Sheet” that explains more in detail the hows and whys of the regulations.

Definitely worth checking out.
