Personal protective equipment for protection against falls from a height – Part 1 : Single-point anchor devices


This Singapore Standard specifies requirements, test methods, and marking, labelling and packaging, as appropriate, of both permanent and temporary single-point anchor devices exclusively for the attachment of personal protective equipment (PPE) for protection against falls from a height for fall arrest, work positioning and travel restraint (work restraint).

The anchor devices certified to this standard can only be used to sustain a maximum (dynamic) arresting force of 6.0 kN, and a maximum (static) loading of 1.0 kN (assuming a person of 100 kg mass) in post-fall arrest suspension, work-positioning mode, or restraint mode.

Anchor devices are intended for single person use only. A rescuer should not attach to the same anchor device as a person being rescued, unless the anchor device has been specifically designed for such purposes, and the instructions for use specifically permit this application.
