Not only is safety important for a high rise window cleaning technician, it’s of paramount importance for customer and community safety. As in any dangerous job, falling debris or equipment can crush pedestrians below.

This is why it’s so important to hire an experienced window cleaning crew to handle the work. Safe occupational practices are a must for anyone doing a potentially hazardous job.

Training & Certifications For Window Cleaning Industry Professionals

When working on a high rise building, it’s important for the technician to be trained and certified. During training, the window cleaning professional is instructed about safety equipment and how to use it. It’s important for the window cleaning company to ensure that every worker has met the requirements.

Shine On Group provides highly trained employees who are licensed and certified for high rise window cleaning service. Our technicians have proven that they practice safety on the job.

Safety For Pedestrians & Customers During Window Cleaning

When a tiny nail or screw falls hundreds of feet, it can kill someone. Imagine what a large suspended scaffold could do to a pedestrian below. Not only are harnesses important for really tall buildings, if a scaffold is necessary then safety is even more important.

Even when cleaning ground floor windows, there is a lot of risk involved with falling objects. The technician is trained with fall protection for any heights over 6 feet. Any person who is closer than 10 feet to a roof edge must wear fall protection gear. In fact, only 4 feet high is considered a fall hazard by OSHA.
