Under new safety rules by OSHA that went into effect January 17, 2017, building owners now are responsible for having roof anchors inspected and certified prior to allowing vendors to use them for window cleaning or fa├žade inspections. Certifications must be completed by November 17.

The Walking-Working Surfaces and Fall Protection Standards include a number of other new requirements; building owners and managers should read OSHA's Fact Sheet to understand how the rules will impact their facilities. BOMA International's codes team also has created a useful guide to understanding the new rules.
