As a Building Owner or Manager, your rooftop is a workplace that must be made safe for those working at heights. It almost goes without saying, that Window Washing and Suspended Access work for those working at height is a risky business, but can be conducted safely when a sound and functional Window Washing, Suspended Access and Fall Protection system is provided. However, it is not only risky for the worker but also risky for those held responsible for the workplace. It is of paramount importance for Building Owners and Managers to provide a safe and functional Suspended Access and Fall Protection System for their building, for the primary purpose of providing a safe workplace, but also to protect themselves. Because if you don’t provide compliant, insured, and certified system and in the unfortunate event of a fatal fall or accident were to happen you may find yourself in the court of law having to answer the following two questions: one (1) what did you do to ultimately protect the health and safety of a worker? And (2) what could you have done to ultimately protect the health and safety of the worker? By choosing Pro-Bel for your Window Washing, Suspended Access and Fall Protection requirements you are partnering with experts who understand the importance of providing a safe and functional system for the end-user but also provides the necessary solutions and assurances for Building Owners and Managers to prevent accidents and mitigate potential risks.
Pro-Bel can supply you with not just a safe, functional and compliant system, but peace of mind. Through our control documents (i.e. engineered drawings, load testing, and annual inspection reports) we will provide the certification and insurances to protect you in the possible event when you may need it the most. As the saying goes, the best defense is offense.
With every installation, Pro-Bel provides engineer stamped drawings and a Log Book outlining mandatory annual inspection requirements that are in accordance with OSHA Regulations and Industry Standards. In addition, it is recommended that the building owner post a copy of the Pro-Bel engineer-approved shop drawing showing equipment layout and details of the window cleaning/suspended maintenance system. The drawing should be located adjacent to the roof entrance for ease of review and understood by window cleaners, inspection authorities and Pro-Bel if necessary. A copy of this drawing must also be provided for the maintenance contractor/personnel prior to commencing work when they are preparing their safe work plan.
