Reason for Pull Out Testing
Verifying the strength of fixings and eyebolts is essential for safety. In the instance of fall arrest harness eyebolts regular thorough examination of the fixing and the substrate that the eyebolt is anchored to is essential to provide safety for the end user.
Visual inspection only is not enough as many factors can contribute to the fixing failing that is not always evident using visual inspection only.
Maintaining eyebolts and safety lines is essential under health & safety legislation and regulations and also as a duty of care to employees and contractors on site.
