There are two specific areas that TIC can assist you with Cal-OSHA regulatory compliance.
If your building requires an Operating Procedures Outline Sheet (OPOS) The Inspection Company can provide you with exactly what you need!
Does your building require an OPOS according to Cal-OSHA? If your answer is “Yes,” to any of these questions, you must have an OPOS developed and provided for all contractors and employees that may access the building’s rooftop.
The Inspection Company will perform the safety inspection and analysis required to develop a comprehensive OPOS for your building that fulfills Cal-OSHA requirements and provides the information needed to safely access your façade.
Oftentimes, particularly if it’s been 10 years since the building equipment has been load tested, a Load Test will need to be performed to ensure the integrity of anchors and building safety devices.
