What You MUST Know As an Injured Window Washer – More Inside
Window washers are a brave lot and a needed group of individuals due to the rising number of high rise apartments and skyscrapers that are popping up in major cities every other year. Window washing is not for the faint of heart, and this is a largely thankless job because most people just assume that a building façade is kept clean without caring to ask about how this happens, or who is responsible. Window washers are strapped to harnesses and hooks and have to traverse a building in order to reach a certain height where scaffolding that is movable is or isn’t provided so they can start cleaning windows. These individuals are exposed to an inordinate amount of risk and as such, employers must do everything in their power to keep their window washers safe from injury, and this includes following government safety agency OSHA regulations. If you are a window washer that got injured while going about your workday, you may be eligible for money damages, and we’d be honored to help you recover this.
