1. Kee Anchor Operation & Maintenance Manual SAFETY AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL

23. 23 Before commencing any work at height activity please ensure you are adequately trained and competent to carry out the task and able to use the safety equipment provided by your employer/building owner. In situations where a work at height activity involves a “fall arrest” situation, it is a legal requirement for your employer/b uilding owner to provide the anchorage point, rescue plan, policy, training and equipment to complete a rescue. It is not the responsibility of the emergency services to conduct such a rescue. Should a rescue become necessary it is extremely important that the procedures detailed in the “roof permit to work,” rescue po licy and plan are followed. Try to make contact with the casualty to establish if they are conscious or unconscious. If they are unconscious then time is of the essence. Contact the emergency services and request an ambulance and fire/rescue support. Inform them of the exact address, location and site contact details of where you are working (This should be contained within the “permit to work”). Confirm that you are trained and competent to comm ence the rescue procedure. Call your site contact and inform them of the situation and that you have already contacted the emergency services. Request the y bring a competent First Aider to assist you at ground level by receiving the casualty. Before commencing the actual rescue, ensure that you are safely connected to an alternative suit - able anchorage point (where possible). Ensure you work in “fall restraint” at all times whilst conducting the rescue procedure. Check you have all the Rescue Kit components as shown in the diagram below. Before commencing the actual rescue, ensure that you are safely connected to an alternative suitable anchorage point (where pos sible). Ensure you work in “fall restraint” at all times whilst conducting the rescue procedure. Check you have all the Rescue Kit components as shown in the diagram above.

3. 3 INTRODUCTION The CE Approved Weightanka® is a Portable Deadweight Anchor device which is an item of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Weightanka® has been specifically designed to provide short term safety for low frequency operations where collective protection is not provided. The unit is ideal for short term maintenance operations to flat roofs or to the plant and equipment installed at roof level such as AC units, telecommunications equipment etc. Weightanka® is extremely compact, portable, and easily assembled. The Weightanka® has been designed to be used with an approved shock absorbing rope grab and rope and full body harness to provide safe access at all times. The unit is fully galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461: Hot Dip Galvanised Coatings Specification and test methods. The Rubber Coated Base Weights are supplied with suction cups. These protect the roof membrane, increase friction resistance and enable the anchor to be used on all roof membranes, even in wet weather. Weightanka® fully complies with Class E of BS EN 795: Protection against falls from height - Anchor devices - Requirements and testing. The system also conforms to BS7883 - Code of practice for the design, selection, installation, use and maintenance of anchor devices conforming to BS EN 795 & ISO 14567 - Personal protective equipment for protection against falls from a height - Single - point anchor devices, and is approved to meet the PPE Directive. The unit has also been designed to ensure compliance with the following Regulations: Construction (Design & Management) Regulations Work at Height Regulations Construction (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations Manual Handling Operations Regulations BUILDING HEIGHT & SAFE WORKING It is essential that a risk assessment is carried out by a competent person to ensure that the product is used safely. Part of the assessment will consider the building’s height and the combination of PPE to be used in conjunction with the Weightanka®. Kee Safety recommends that, as far as reasonably practicable, the Weightanka® should be used as a fall restraint solution rather than fall arrest. When used for fall restraint, the Weightanka® must be used in conjunction with PPE that prevents the operative from reaching the leading edge. Weighanka® should then be positioned so that the rope remains taught as the user approaches the edge. If the above is not possible and a fall arrest solution is required then a sufficiently detailed risk assessment, method statement and rescue policy must be produced by a competent person. Care must also be taken to use the correct combination of PPE to minimize the distance & consequence of a potential fall. Kee Anchor System Overview

15. 15 Kee Wireanka Compliance to EN 795 Class C WIREANKA SYSTEM The Wireanka® System consists of a series of Weightanka’s® linked via the KeeLine® horizontal lifeline system. Wireanka can be designed as a complete restraint or fall arrest system for up to two users and complies with EN 795 Class C & E and ISO 14567. A series of Weightanka’s® can be linked at approximate 15m centres via the KeeLine® horizontal life line. The KeeLine® horizontal life line provides the operative with hands-free operation so that whena bracket is encountered, the shuttle attaching the operative to the systemglides over the bracket without the need t o detach. This type of installation is ideal if a free standing solution is required in order to avoid roof membrane penetration, or the roof design is not suitable for structural fixings associated with horizontal lifeline installations. This configuration of equipment ensures compliance with HSG 33 requiring “demarcated” safe areas/routes to ensure operatives remain within a specific area. Consideration must be given to ensure that when designed as a “fall restraint” system the operatives remain unable to reach a ny roof edge/void. It is essential the combination of PPE is appropriate for the particular designed system.

28. 28 v. Pass the loose end of the Kernmantel Rope around the pig tail of the Rescue Hub. Hold the rope firmly in one hand. To take the load off the casualty, simply rotate and pull the Locking Pin upwards and rotate sufficiently so that the pin is disengaged from the Rescue Hub. Whilst holding the Kernmantel Rope you can move back towards the area where the casualty fell. w. Once you are in a comfortable position and able to hold the casualty with one hand, take the casualty’s primary rope which you previously disconnected from the anchorage point. When ready, carefully position yourself so you are able to attach this primary rope to the Rescue Hub Rope (Kernmantel Rope) as shown above. Ensure that you keep holding the Rescue Hub Kernmantel Rope at all times. Gradually lower the casualty’s primary rope until the hook reaches the casualty’s “D” ring. Ensure you are still holding the Rescue Hub Kernmantel Rope. You can now let the casualty’s primary rope fall to the ground so that it can be used as a guy rope by those at ground level who are ready to assist/receive the casualty. x. Begin to lower the casualty gradually, continually observing them and communicating with both the casualty and those at ground level who are receiving/assisting the casualty. The competent first aider must then follow the standard UK first aid guidance for the recovery of a person. The casualty must then be seen by the ambulance crew, even if they appear to have recovered. Rescue Kit Operation

24. 24 a. Connecting to the same or an alternative suitable anchorage point. Connect the Rescue Hub device using the Screw Gate Karabiner fitted directly to the Rescue Hub. Ensure the Screw Gate is tightened once connected to the anchorage point. c. Start walking towards the area where the casualty has fallen whilst still holding the Rescue Rope Grab. When you reach this area, kneel down and continue to pull out sufficient rope to reach the “D” ring on the casualty’s harness. d. Ensure the Edge Protector is connected to the anchorage point, this may need to be extended in some cases via a webbing or rope sling. Place the Edge Protector over the edge ready for the rescue operation. b. Pull the end of the Kernmantel Rope which has the Rescue Rope Grab attached. The Kernmantel Rope will start to feed out of the rescue bag and run through the Rescue Hub. Rescue Kit Operation

27. 27 r. Start winding the Rescue Hub in a clockwise direction so that the Kernmantel Rope passes through the hub. If the rope does not move through the hub, pull on the free end of the rope. Continue to wind until the casualty’s primary rope becomes slack. s. Once the casualty’s primary rope is slack enough to detach their primary hook/karabiner from the anchorage point, stop winding and engage the locking pin by lifting, rotating & then lowering it. Ensure the pin is engaged against the body of the Rescue Hub. When in place correctly the Hub cannot turn. t. You can now remove the casualty’s slack primary rope from the anchorage point as shown above. u. Close the Rescue Hub by pressing in the silver ball bearing in the centre of the white plate. Once closed fold down the plastic handle. Rescue Kit Operation

(To be avoided) Free fall distance: 3.0m (9.84’) Fall factor = 3.0/1.5 = 2.0 (9.84/4.92 = 2.0) NOTE: The lower human figure in each diagram indicates the position of the user at the end of the free fall. This is the point at which the energy absorber begins to deploy and should not be confused with the position the user would be in at the end of the arrest of the fall. KEY F = Free fall distance (Source BS 8437:2005) The above diagram shows three fall arrest situations. In each case the fall arrest system is based on a 1.5m (4.92’) long ener gy absorbing lanyard and a distance between the attachment point on the user’s harness and their feet of 1.5m (4’92”). The free fall distance is the vertical distance between the position of the user’s feet immediately before the fall, and the position of the user’s feet at the point at which the lanyard has become taut and started to arrest the fall. (Figure F in the diagram) Minimum Height Requirements

29. 29 • Periodic inspections by a competent person are recommended by the manufacturer. In UK/Europe these are required under Regulation 5 of the Workplace (Health Safety & Welfare) Regulation, BS EN 365 & BS 7883. The frequency will depend upon environment, location and utilisation, but should be at least every 12 months. • Walk & visually inspect the complete system installation (where applicable) in relation to the general client’s needs. Establish if any modifications, additional products are required to reflect any refurbishment or additional plant and equipment that has been installed and requires access. • Check installation configuration (where applicable) is complete as per the original installation drawing/plan. • Ensure the system has not been modified/tampered with by unauthorised persons. DETAILED COMPONENT INSPECTION:- Cross Frame Components. • Check arms on cross for distortion or dents. • Check metal plate for distortion or cracks. • Check for any general corrosion. Vertical pins and clips • Check for distortion along length. Ensure that this does not affect the fitting of the weight. • Ensure thread is in good condition and the pin can be connected. • Look for signs of cracks in metal - especially around any “bruised” areas. • Check for any general corrosion. • Check clips are still present and in good order to lock and unlock (ease of movement). Counter weights • Check the encapsulated rubber pads on the weights are in good order - no tears or rubber missing. • Check handle for dents, cracking etc. • Check for any general corrosion. • Any galvanised components showing signs of corrosion, wire brush thoroughly and apply galvanised spray / paint as appropriate. • If rusted significantly take digital photographs and include in the inspection report. • Once all other inspection points are completed, check that the whole device is fixed securely in position with no obvious distor tions in balance. System Plaque • Check system plaque (where applicable) position & mark up to reflect date of the next required inspection. Establish if addition al plaques are required due to any refurbishment works. • In the event of a fall the Dead Weight Anchor MUST be returned to the manufacturer for re-testing. Kee Anchor Annual Recertification

4. 4 Generally the length of the shock absorbing rope grab device should not exceed the height of the building in order to avoid the possibility of the pendulum effect. To prevent this, the Weightanka® should be placed perpendicular to the leading edge where the operative is likely to be working. The rope grab line should remain taught at all times when working at the leading edge. No part of the Weightanka® should be placed closer than 2.5m from the nearest roof edge. The unit should not be placed on any surfaces affected by ice, grease or similar slippery conditions which may impair the performance of the unit. ROOF PITCH & SAFE WORKING Weightanka® can be used on any flat roof or industrial steel cladded pitched roof up to 15° pitch provided that the unit is positioned on the opposite pitch to where the operative intends to work. When placed on a roof slope, the Weightanka® must be at least 2.5m from the ridge. In all cases, the roof structure must be capable of taking the load of the Weightanka® (250kg base unit) combined with the weight of the operative, plus any additional equipment required. LEGAL REQUIREMENTS The Work at Height Regulations 2005 require that the employer/ building owner has a rescue plan and policy in place for all fall arrest systems. TESTING & CE APPROVAL Kee Safety’s Weightanka® has been extensively tested by NEL to BS EN 795: Protection against falls from a height - Anchor devices - Requirements and testing. The unit was tested on the following roof surfaces and has been awarded CE Approval accordingly. Single Ply Membrane Paving Slabs HT Mineral Grade Felt Asphalt Swept Stone Chippings Steel Cladding EN 795 TEST PROCEDURE The test involved a 100kg weight freefalling a distance of 2.5m to reach a force of 25kN. The Mobile Man Anchor then had to bring this force to a complete rest within a horizontal movement not exceeding 1.0m. This was achieved via the partial deformation of the Top & Bottom Cross Frame. Full independent test documentation is available upon request. EN 795 REVIEW This standard has recently been reviewed and published in 2012. Unfortunately this new version has not been harmonised and is not listed on the official journal. Therefore test houses are unable to provide CE certificates to this new version of the standard. The new version remains very similar and the 100kg test weight remains unchanged, but the free fall distance has been changed and test houses have to calculate this to generate a 9kN force. Once this dynamic load has been applied an additional 200kg static load is applied, thus representing an extreme rescue situation where a rescuer has no choice but to abseil to the casualty. (Kee Safety does not recommend connecting a second person (fall arrest) to the system under any circumstances, including in the event of a rescue) Kee Anchor System Overview

26. 26 l. Return to the anchorage point where the Rescue Hub is connected. Pull any excess Kernmantel Rope through the Rescue Hub by pulling the free end of the rope which is stored in the bag. m. Once the Rescue Hub Kernmantel Rope is taught, rotate & lower the locking pin so that it engages with the body of the hub. When in place correctly, the hub cannot turn. n. Lift up the black handle as shown above. o. With the black handle in position push in the silver ball bearing positioned in the centre of the white plate as shown above. p. Now open the top third of the Rescue Hub and it will automatically lock into place. q. Detach the pin. Rescue Kit Operation

20. 20 PERSONAL FALL PROTECTION SYSTEMS Personal fall protection systems are required when an operative is working at an elevated level with an unprotected side or edge, which can be at any height. The system must be designed in such a way to prevent the operative from free falling more than 2m (6’6”) or striking a lower level. There are two ways that a com - pany can accomplish this task: Fall Restraint or Fall Arrest. FALL RESTRAINT SYSTEM This system does exactly what it states. It is designed in such a way as to restrain the user from falling by not allowing the user to get to the leading edge. With this system the free fall distance is ZERO. Belts can be used with this type of system but a full body harness is recommended. If any possibility of a free fall exists then the user needs to use a Fall Arrest system. FALL ARREST SYSTEM A fall arrest system consists of the following components: Anchor, Connector, Body support and Retrieval. • Anchors need to have a minimum breaking strength of 10kN or be engineered for a specific system and have a safety factor of 2:1. • Connectors can consist of one of several different means. A positioning lanyard, a deceleration lanyard, a self-retracting lanyard/life line or a climbing aid device. • Body support is a full body harness. A full body harness distributes the fall impact throughout the body and allows the user to better absorb a fall. • When working in a fall arrest situation it is a legal requirement for the employer/building owner to have a rescue policy and plan in place and not to rely solely on the emergency services. Anyone responsible for or working at height must be trained fully on correct rescue procedures including how to use the rescue kit provided. Should an emergency occur, a competent first aider should be present to assist with the casualty and to follow the standard first aid guidance for the recovery of a person. KEY COMPONENTS OF A FALL ARREST SYSTEM There are a number of issues that need to be addressed when considering using a fall arrest system. IMPACT FORCEM (EUROPEAN) The maximum impact force for a full body harness is 6kN and 10kN for the anchorage point. Calculating the impact force is difficult because there are so many variables. These variables include fall distance, person’s weight, and attachment method (self retracting life line, shock-absorbing lanyards, etc.). (See Table for North America Fall Protection Regulations) EQUIPMENT COMPATIBILITY It is important that the equipment being used is compatible with one another. The entire system needs to be measured by its weakest link. Conventional locking snap hooks need to be used with compatible D-ring connectors. It is a general recommendation that a user does not mix fall protection equipment from various manufacturers in order to avoid a compatibility issue and to ensure maximum manufacturer guarantee of quality and use. FREE FALL DISTANCE In layman’s terms, it is the distance that a person falls before any part of the system starts to arrest the fall. Free fall is measured from the anchorage point to the point in which the system started to arrest the fall. This distance excludes deceleration distance and lanyard/harness elongation. Maximum free fall distance is 2m (6’6”) or striking a lower level. TOTAL FALL DISTANCE Is measured as the distance the operative fell from the point at which they were standing to the position of their feet after the fall. Free fall and deceleration distances are included in the measurement. See falling distances diagram. ANCHORAGE POINTS Need to be rated at a minimum of 10kN (2248lbs) per person. If engineered, they need to have a 2:1 safety factor. (Minimum USA requirement is 5000lbs.). (See Table for North America Fall Protection Regulations) Consideration of fall protection system & PPE should include: 1m - system deflection 2m - height of person 2m - shock absorbing lanyard up to 1.75m - absorber extension In this instance, a minimum distance for fall arrest of 6.75m will be required.
