A Look At The Safety Steps We Take At SERVPRO of Arlington
At SERVPRO of Arlington, our safety coordinators take the wellbeing of our employees and customers very seriously. With so much equipment designed to keep our team safe in hazardous conditions, routine checks of these devices and gear can help to ensure that everything is operating at the highest possible level. With safety being such a massive part of the work that we do, as both a commitment to each employee and the customers that we serve, we thought it best to give you a sample of one of the tests that we routinely run on a vital piece of personal protective equipment: the respirator.
As you can see in the video, many employees line up with their respirator to work towards checking each one for leaks. With a thin smoke test, this vapor gets pumped into the face of every employee with a mask on to ensure that cartridges are functioning as they should and that the seal around the nose and beneath the mouth is airtight.
While all of the equipment in the video passes the smoke test, as indicated by the head gestures, we thought it best to show what would happen if there was a leak detected in one of the masks. It might be comical to see some of our employees trying to avoid coughing when the smoke hits their lungs. it shows just how quickly our team can detect a problem with one of the masks and work to get it corrected should it exist.
We at SERVPRO of Arlington also have similar style tests for other PPE that the team uses on a regular basis. Moreover, these methods prevent unnecessary injuries, ailments, or worse. It has always been and continues to be our policy that a little bit of time spent ensuring the equipment works is far more cost effective than any alternative.
Now that you have a brief background into the work that we do behind the scenes to keep our technicians safe, you can trust that this safety conscious atmosphere continues in every facet of the work that we do in your home or business.
