Safety | Sky Web II

Fall Protection

Safety is a big priority in our industry as many contractors and business employees find themselves having to work in risky environments such as tall buildings. One way you can help keep you and your employee safe is to use the Sky Web II Fall Protection and Insulation Support System.

 

The Sky-Web-II® System is an innovative passive restraint system that protects workers from falls at the leading edge of a roof. It provides a “web” of knotted nylon mesh that is attached to the perimeter of the roof’s secondary structural members. This products leads to an increase in safety and reduces injury.

 

Be safe this year and look into using the Sky Web II Fall Protection System. You and you’re co-workers will be glad you did.

Safety First

Recently, China has been in the news for its overwhelming large quantities of smog.  You’ve probably seen the various civilians on TV walking around with mask, bandanas and possibly make shift covers for their faces to help reduce the amount of pollution they are inhaling. In light of the recent events overseas, we’d thought it would be wise to remind our customers to first and foremost stay safe on the job when it comes to air born contaminants. We have a variety of safety equipment including respirators, half and full faced. The full faced respirators come with a supplied air system. If a respirator isn’t what you’re looking for, we also carry disposable dust masks that will help provide relief from common level household dust and pollen.

Prepare For Winter In Summer

Furnace Filter

Summer can give you a great opportunity to start making modifications to your customer’s homes & office buildings to prepare for winter. Starting early will only benefit your customers down the road when winter hits. One of the easiest things you can do to help them is by replacing their furnace filter.

Chances are they are not using it in the summer which gives you a prime opportunity to replace it and remove the old one from last year. Putting in a new furnace filter can only improve the air quality and it is one of those items that many home-owners forget to do before winter arrives.

You can pick up a furnace filter from our online store. The great news is that the furnace filter we provide is made for washing and reusing. Once installed, homeowners will only need to wash it to vastly improve their air quality.

Many insulation contractors in warmer climates face extremely high temperatures in the attics of homes when on the job. The Tennessee Chill box can supply fresh air for personal breathing protection when needed. This device can supply cool air, as much as 40 to 50 degrees lower than the ambient temperature, for two workers operating up to 100 feet from the unit. The Tennessee Chill Box increases comfort levels for workers operating in high temperatures by supplying cool air to them which can result in added safety & higher productivity.

Respirators – A Life Saver

3m Respirator

Over this past weekend we were all reminded of the horrific events of 9/11/2001. Footage was shown again of the towers being hit with two planes and soon after crumbling to the ground. The unbelievable amount of dust & debris shown on videos that were taken blocks away from the collapse of the buildings was hard to believe. In a few of the videos that aired on various networks a majority of rescue personnel had some type of a respirator device on after the events that lead to a dusted New York skyline. However, many civilians did not have any equipment resulting in them using clothing to cover their face from clouds of dust that were engulfing the city streets.

Many of these civilians in a few short hours inhaled devastating amounts of airbourne materials which in turn could result in respiratory illness. Studies are still taking place on those civilians that were near the towers on 9/11 to determine the long term health effects of witnessing the event.

Contractors & employees can be regularly exposed to harmful airborne materials from various projects while on the job. Let the events from 9/11 remind you that airborne materials can be very harmful if you are not wearing the correct respirator equipment to protect yourself. We carry the 3M Full Facepiece Reusable Respirator that will protect you against a variety of gases, vapors and particulate hazards according to NIOSH approvals. You never know when you’ll need it on the job and you’ll be glad you had it available. Those emergency personnel were glad they did on 9/11/2001.

 

Service Partners insulation distributors has over 75 locations in North America ready to supply insulation and accessories to contractors and businesses.
