Abstract Preview

This International 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
restriction (work restraint).
It is applicable only to anchor devices for PPEs that conform to ISO 10333-1, ISO 10333-2, ISO 10333-3 and
ISO 10333-5.
NOTE 1 Further standards are in preparation for other types of PPE: ISO 10333-6 and ISO 14566 (see bibliography).
Anchor devices are rated 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.
NOTE 2 Vertical rigid or flexible line systems and horizontal lifelines are not within the scope of this International Standard,
but are covered in ISO 10333-4 and ISO 16024.
