At Davinci's Painting, we scale great heights! This photograph shows one of our Carpenters on top of a very high roof of a luxury townhome. This townhome is part of the Fenwick Court Subdivision and is located in Arlington, Virginia. Throughout the month of October, our company is in the process of replacing extensive portions of the exterior trim for about 5 townhomes within this community. Several of these jobs feature dormer windows that are four stories high. All of these projects will continue to require the use of a 48 foot extension ladder, as well as, safety harnesses in order to adequately ensure worker safety.
Prior to starting any exterior project, we first scope out the job to determine the type of equipment and ladders that will be needed, as well as selecting fall protection processes that are compatible with the type of work that will be performed. In some cases, we even have to identify and evaluate fall hazards that could occur while working indoors on high ceilings and stairwells. It is very important that every employee be supported by a harness, if they are performing work on a ladder that is greater than 32 feet.
Safety is an important consideration in construction related fields like painting, because of potentially dangerous working conditions. Providing safety equipment and harnesses isn’t everything, we are also very diligent and our Painter Foremen are constantly alert on the job to be sure that adequate safety practices are being followed. Our employees also have a responsibility for themselves, their fellow workers, and the home owner’s property. We value our employees and we want them to return to their home every night, safe and uninjured.
We are really proud of our safety record and we have never had a serious workplace accident within the 30+ years that we have been in business. The benefits of maintaining a safe work environment is primarily undertaken in order to protect the painters and our clients’ property. A safe work environment impacts our project’s bottom line. Not only does this help boost our employee morale, but there are also fewer schedule interruptions due to incidents. Moreover, the implementation of good safety protocols has also advanced our company’s reputation.
