Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required on the job to help keep workers safe, healthy, and productive, and 3M’s Personal Safety Division makes some of the best stuff out there. The company is showcasing its full PPE equipment product lineup at the 2016 National Safety Council Expo this week in booth #1404.
One device that might interest you or your solar installation staff in particular is the 3M DBI-SALA Self-Rescue Device.
When a worker is suspended after a fall from height, every second matters. To minimize risk to the suspended worker, their coworkers and emergency response personnel, at-height workers need a rescue plan that doesn’t leave them hanging.
The Self-Rescue Device is a flexible device that attaches to a current safety harness and allows workers to lower themselves to safety in the event of a fall from height.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
