Safety_LogoChoosing the right service provider for your company’s entrance and warehouse door needs can be tricky. You want an established, reliable and insured company that will provide a quick turnaround at a reasonable price, but you also want a company that recognizes just how important putting safety first is before beginning that repair job.

Training

Choose a company that puts safety paramount, requiring its service technicians to complete initial safety training as well as periodic refresher training. The company you want for your commercial door repair needs will have a solid record of consistently monitoring and enforcing the appropriate safety procedures and equipment as well as adhering to OSHA specifications. Technicians should also be trained in ladder safety, driving company vehicles, and OSHA’s Lock Out, Tag Out procedures. Lock Out, Tag Out are the procedures and practices that govern how electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, and thermal energy sources are handled. They should also be properly trained in metal properties in order to perform the correct welding and torch procedures.

The Right Equipment

In addition to the right skills, a professional company should also have the right safety equipment, which includes:

  • Welding goggles or mask for eye protection from welding arc flash
  • Protective heat, flame, and cut resistant welding sleeves
  • Steel toe boots
  • Hard hat
  • High-visibility safety vest
  • Safety Cones and Delineators
