“Our goal is to bring back our field workers back home the same way they left this morning.”
-Neftali “Nef” Flores, Founder and CEO
Safety is our #1 priority!
At ROJANI each employee is extensively trained to use the safest methods to perform their work. Employees are required to complete an in-house safety course on safe practices and working procedures. Along with obtaining appropriate on-the-job training, ROJANI also complies with all local, federal, OSHA and ANSI/IWCA I-14 window cleaning safety standards.
To ensure the safety of our personnel, as well as our clients, we practice several safety methods.
ROJANI teams with National Society of Professional Engineers™ (NSPE™)-registered professional engineers (PEs) to evaluate every work location to emphasize safety while providing our customers with additional value-added services such as annual roof inspections where warranted. Annual roof inspections consist of a visual and physical inspection of the previously inspected, engineered and permanently installed anchors and suspended maintenance equipment. The inspection is conducted by a qualified inspector under the supervision of a PE to ensure that the anchors and suspended maintenance equipment are in safe operating condition and have not degraded due to wear, decay, or lack of maintenance.
Inspections: ROJANI proposes to perform the following inspections, including, but not limited to:
- inspection of all exterior window systems
- inspection of the window caulking and seals and frame to building seals during the course of window cleaning
- notation of such inspections by floor, building, and the extent of distress observed
- where needed, taking digital photographs documenting the damage and/or distress for review by building engineering staff
- areas requiring repair that are identified during the course of the work shall be documented and reported to the customer
- inspection of all windows on all buildings as described in the project specifications
- inspection of all window system glass, frames and sealants, reporting any defects or deficiencies with photographic documentation as described above to the customer
Safety: ROJANI will provide any and all types of shielding, barricades, warning signs and any other protection necessary to protect the personnel, equipment and the area in which we are working, from injury, damage, and/or contamination during the full term of the Contract. All protection required to fulfill these specifications will be installed at the beginning of the work period and removed as soon as the work is completed unless written permission is given by the customer to leave the protection in place for future work. ROJANI will provide the customer a written work and safety plan at least five working days prior to the start of any work that will address potential risks in pursuing the work, and steps taken to mitigate those risks, including but not limited to methods of anchoring working surfaces and personnel to ensure fall protection and procedures used in case of an emergency; and, the work plan will include the proposed work schedule and identify by timeline when certifications of wire ropes, working platforms, and other associated equipment are required during the course of the project. We also will provide a procedural description of daily inspections to ensure personnel safety and equipment readiness. We will provide the customer with a written work plan and safety plan during any pre-project meetings; the plan may be approved by the customer prior to the start of work as needed.
Building Anchorage: ROJANI will review records of the weight testing data and annual inspections of permanent building anchorage systems used for exterior building maintenance where needed. ROJANI is responsible for requesting review of these records as needed. All customer property will be protected at all times when overhead work is in progress.
Personal Protective Equipment: ROJANI personnel involved in the work shall have in their possession at all times and use, as required, any and all safety equipment prescribed by OSHA and/or other federal, state and local regulations.
Regulatory Compliance: ROJANI will comply with the occupational health and safety standards as set forth in OSHA 29 CFR 1910 and ANSI/ICWA 1 14, the Window Cleaning Safety Standard, for exterior building maintenance operations. ROJANI is available to meet with any required Fire Marshal and Environmental Health and Safety personnel as needed and provides assurance that our company and our personnel will follow all facility safety policies.
Green Purchasing Plan: ROJANI is committed to purchasing and using cleaning products that are designed to minimize negative impacts on public health and the environment. All products and chemicals either meet or exceed the EPA’s published guidelines or have been certified as environmentally preferable by leading independent organizations such as Green Seal™.
