There are various sections on our roof that need to be treated very carefully. One of them is where the ventilation system is. It comprises quite a large section of one of the roofs, and I realized that we would probably be better off by having a step unit go over it rather than having tech guys try to get to the guts of it when something needed to be done to it. The only reason I even thought of this is because one of my other companies needed a step unit for inside the factory, and it has raised the safety level considerably.
When I saw how nice the step unit was for the workers, and how much easier it made their jobs not to mention how much safer it was, I knew that I was going to look at all of the buildings that I own to see what other changes we could make to make a better work environment for everyone inside. We buy all of our safety ladders from one company in particular because they have a reputation that cannot be beat by anyone else in the industry, so I went to their website to see if I could find the units that I wanted.
I should not have been surprised at the sheer number of things they offer, but I was. The units they have are exactly what I was looking for, and all of the information I needed about each one was there too. I was even able to read some great tips like safety requirements that are legally required, putting these on different roof types and so much more. I had my maintenance team look further into it and order what was needed to make their job easier on the roofs as well as the workers’ jobs easier in the factories.
