Is Your Building Washing Company Taking Safety Seriously?

There are many safety concerns that come with the task of washing a building, which means that taking the necessary measures to address them shouldn’t be negotiable. Sound health and safety practices are at the core of how Building Wash Services operates, so we know what we’re talking about when it comes to this. Here are a few pointers on questions to ask before you give the go-ahead for building washers to do site work on your property.

Are They Site Safe Certified?

Site Safe is an educational and regulatory institution that ensures that site workers in various environments are equipped with the skills to do their jobs safely. If the building washing company you’re considering is certified, then they hold themselves to a high standard and are committed to health and safety. It’s also an indication that they’ve undertaken training to equip their staff appropriately.

Have They Undertaken Training For Working At Heights?

Most commercial buildings consist of multiple levels, which means that anyone cleaning it will need to be trained and certified for working at height. Imagine the minefield of risks that comes with hiring a service provider that doesn’t have these credentials. It’s not worth it. You deserve the comfort of knowing that anyone working at height on your building is equipped with safety and trade knowledge, as well as the right tools to do the job.

What About Equipment?

Many commercial building washing companies hire their equipment, especially when it comes to working at heights. This means they aren’t in control of the upkeep or maintenance of the tools they use. Choose a service provider that owns and takes care of their own equipment (and not just ladders), preferably cherry picker wash trucks, so that they can guarantee safe, efficient access when washing your building.
