Whether you’re looking for a contractor to handle your HVAC, electrical or automation systems, it’s extremely important to ensure that you hire a licensed company with technicians who are both qualified and safety-trained.
HVAC and electrical workers face hazards on the job every day. These tradespeople are often required to lift heavy objects, remain bent over for long periods of time and to work at great heights as well as in confined spaces. They also work with various tools, electrical wiring, gases and chemicals - all potential dangers if not handled properly.
It might sound a bit scary, but all of these dangers are avoidable with the proper training. This is why it’s extremely important to ensure that the contractors you hire have the proper safety training and are qualified for the job.
Not only does this help keep the workers safe, but it helps keep you safe, as well. Ensuring that your contractor has the proper qualifications means that they will do the job properly, keeping your building safe and avoiding potentially costly repairs in the future.
It’s also important to check that the company you are hiring has the proper licensing. Just in case a worker does happen to incur injuries on the job, you want to be sure that it is covered by insurance, and that it does not become your responsibility.
At Kimco, we take safety seriously. The safety of both our employees and our clients is our top priority, which is why we ensure that everyone at Kimco is properly trained and that our licensing is always up-to-date.
