Window Cleaning Professionals Safely Rescued from Scaffolding by NYFD

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

PMI brings extensive knowledge of work-at-height best practices and professional rescue techniques. We provide rescue solution kits that are ready to go when you need them. In our trainings for work-at-height, we emphasize preplanning for rescue situations and creating detailed Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) plans for the specific job(s) that are being performed that day. It is very important in this type of work to preplan for rescues and coordinate efforts between employers and local emergency response agencies. PMI offers equipment/solutions, resources, consulting for rescue situations as described in the article below. With the appropriate equipment and planning, a rescue for this scenario can be carried out safely, quickly and can be more cost effective. The following article and video shows how dangerous the window cleaning profession can be for workers-at-height. We are glad that these workers made it to safety with the help of the New York Fire Department. Click on the link below:
