Fall Protection Gear Saves Lives
With the heavy snows New England has been facing this winter, many contractors are finding themselves on top of homes and business, cleaning the snow and ice from roofs and overhangs. While very profitable, this can be extremely dangerous work: snow and ice makes for a very slippery work surface, not to mention hidden drops and other obstacles you encounter on a roof that could cause a fall.
Slips and falls can be dangerous in any work facility, and adding a building’s height only amplifies that danger. The best case scenario in an unprotected fall from a single story building could be a broken arm or leg, and that’s being generous. That type of injury could put a worker out of work from 3 – 6 weeks with some hefty medical bills. Now add an additional story to the home or a particularly high office building, and the dangers of a fall become very serious, even fatal.

Warm Days Brings Flooding Water
This past Sunday was just a tease of the warmer weather to come, and even though we’re set for some colder weather this week, don’t think it will stay that way for too much longer. As things begin to heat up, all of this lovely snow we’ve been collecting will just start to melt away… and all of that water has to go somewhere.

Winter’s Chill Is Here
We’re in the deep of winter, and to New Englanders, that means having to work in frigid temperatures, ice, and snow. Working in the cold and snow can be brutal when you’re not properly equipped: cold winds whipping at your neck, your hands becoming stiff and raw, and that overall feel of discomfort that slows your work down to a crawl.

You Just Can’t Beat A Quality Jacket
I can think of nothing that can ruin your workday more than having to work outside in the cold with an old, thin, uncomfortable jacket to protect you from the elements.

You want to be safe and comfortable during your work day, but it seems that all too many jackets offer one or the other: you’re either going to be cold and visible or comfortable and meet the requirements of your jobsite. Guess which one you’ll probably end up getting stuck with.
