ANNUAL SIT INSPECTIONS 

(SOCKETS, DAVITS & HOISTS)

S.I.T. is the Acronym for “Scaffold Inspection and Testing”


Sockets and High profile Davits are one of the most common systems for support of a suspended platform for buildings from 130 feet tall to 400 feet tall. Low profile davits are utilized for ground rigging a platform on buildings less than 130 feet tall, making them lightweight and easy to transfer between work positions.

All suspended maintenance equipment, components, and tie-back anchors are required to be inspected annually (at least every 12 months). A similar inspection should be performed following any major building façade or roof top modification in order to identify and correct any safety hazards or equipment needs.

Our SIT inspections which include roof anchors, suspension systems, access systems, fall protection, and powered platform are performed by our highly trained technicians. We have the capability to test for and certify support loads and functionality of any and all BMU equipment and also recommend a solution for any short fall in equipment or safety needs.

Our services include the visual inspection of fall protection anchors, davit bases, davit pedestals, davit arms, tie-backs, outriggers, monorails and other permanently mounted facade access & fall protection equipment.
