Further to my December blog post, 'Choosing the right window cleaner, six questions to ask' - one of the most important things to check before commissioning a window cleaner for a job is - "do you value safety and implement safe work practices?". This might sound a little 'over the top', but the reality is, some window cleaning specialists might be overconfident or...sorry to say....foolish.
Below is an example of a window cleaner attempting to clean a city building. As demonstrated, he obviously sees no problems with taking a bit of risk...all for the sake of getting the job done.
Warning: do not do this at home or work!
If you thought that was bad, there are countless other examples of unprofessional window cleaners, thoughtlessly risking life and disregarding work health and safety standards. Below is a 15 minute documentary of crazy window cleaning clips collected from YouTube, by Lee Burbidge's Crazy World Of Window Cleaning.
Selecting a safe window cleaner
As you can see, it's imperative that your Hobart window cleaner employs safe work methods. Do they primarily rely on ladders? In the age of technology, do they use the most safe and effective method, such as the Waterfed Pole system?
The Waterfed Pole system has completely changed the window cleaning industry, bringing peace of mind to not only window cleaners, but householders who employ their services. ClearVis implements this most safe and effective method wherever possible in servicing its Hobart clientele.
Rather than taking risks with ladders on sloping terrain, ClearVis operates the safe Waterfed Pole system from ground level, which contributes to health & safety, but also reduces the intrusion to its client’s privacy. The Waterfed Pole system’s hose is light, long and thin which allows it to reach easily around obstructions such as vehicles, walls or garden objects.
Don’t take risks with safety! Remember the motto “Work safe – home safe”. For further information regarding safe work practices, visit www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au.
