The following programs are currently in place to ensure safety and compliance:

On-site safety inspections: Inspections are performed by our Management staff frequently routinely and City Wide works with a 3rd party safety consulting firm to perform regular “unannounced” safety inspections. All City Wide employees and 3rd party consultants have STOP Work authority with safety concerns. Safety inspections are distributed to the entire management staff digitally and the results of all safety inspections are reviewed by the Operations team.
Consultation: City Wide partners with building owners, equipment manufacturers and engineers to ensure fall protection systems and roof top anchors meet the highest level of compliance.
Accessing your building’s facade is inherently dangerous work. With this much exposure to risk, you cannot afford to take any chances. That’s why City Wide goes above and beyond what’s required to prevent any incidents. But in the unlikely event that an incident does occur, we have liability insurance coverage with some of the highest limits in the industry.
Emergency Response Team: If an incident occurs, our team — comprised of City Wide personnel along with a third-party investigative first-response service — will accurately assess any exposure and liability to protect all parties involved.
