New Standard – Personal fall protection equipment. Anchor systems. Specification – BS 8610:2017

Comments (0) Height Safety Updates, News


In December 2017, the British Standards Institute launched BS 8610:2017. These are new standards for Personal fall protection equipment – Anchor systems and they represent a significant upgrade from the older standards they replace. As a consequence, they are somewhat more complex.

We recognise the importance of getting key standards and safety information distributed across our sector and to assist in this process, Highwire are working with BSIF and other sector experts to develop a simplified position paper.

We will publish this as soon as possible.

In the meantime, if you would like to know more we would love to hear from you.

Alternatively, you can access more details on the new standard here.
