Letter from the Owner
Safety is a critical part of what we must focus on, Our Safety and the consumer’s safety.
Many things can cause a business owner to lose sleep. The safety of the Employees and Customers are right at the top. We had a very close call this last Month and could have been attending a Funeral. We were blessed that only an injury that can be recovered from was the result. I try to educate and provide a safe environment for both Employee and Customer, but I am not able to follow each crew and direct each action on a job site. I must trust that you all take your safety and the safety of our customers as the highest priority. A few key items to review with regard to safety:
1. Never leave a hoistway entry unprotected. Even if you are working safely around the entry, other trades may be curious and not use appropriate safety when approaching an open hoistway.
2. Your partner’s safety is just as important as your own. If we as a TEAM look out for the other TEAM member and work as a TEAM we will work safer.
3. Always use Confirming communications when moving a car in a hoistway. “Going UP” “Yes clear going UP”. Wait to hear the confirming response from all team members.
4. Use barricades for your work area. Someone entering your work area could kick a tool off the landing into a hoistway.
5. Secure all entrances after you are done working at that landing.
6. Don’t go onto a job site without you harness already on. You are elevator installers. You will be at some point working in an area where being secured to a safety harness is REQUIRED.
Please be safe,
