How are you currently working?                                      

Which fall protection method do you currently rely on for HVAC safety? If you count on the anchor points on your customer’s roof, ask yourself these questions before planning your day:

  • How many anchor points are there ?
  • Where are they positioned ?
  • Are they certified ? If so, since when ?
  • Do you have the freedom of movement necessary to do your job ?

Maybe do you use mobile anchor points. Their usage is different their permanent anchor point:

  • Is it available for each project ?
  • How to get it on the rooftop ?


Many HVAC contractors also use their customer’s platform to anchor themselves while working on the roof. Relying on this method is dangerous since you always depends on its availability !
