Safety First! DBM 620 air flow meter's tripod avoids falls from ladders
Each year in the U.S., ladder accidents amount for more than 130,000 emergency room visits and over 300 fatalities. That’s a rate of more than 2,000 injuries a day in America alone.
U.S. building codes set a minimum height of 7 feet, 6 inches in habitable spaces. A fall from that height is enough to result in serious injury and if it occurs at work, such a fall could result in significant time lost from work and even permanent disability.
On-the-job injuries are expensive, and they destroy productivity.
Ladder injuries are always one of the leading causes of on-the-job injury in the U.S., so much so that The Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) and the American Ladder Institute (ALI) have collaborated to make every march “Ladder Safety Month” in the United States.
While comprehensive numbers worldwide are unavailable, it stands to reason that falls from ladders are a major cause of both on-the-job and at-home injuries no matter where you reside.
This is just one reason why the new DBM 620 from Sauermann can be equipped with a telescoping tripod. Our folding tripod not only takes up less space than competing designs, it’s also lighter, which is a win all-around for technicians.
Now your technicians can sample readings from hard-to-reach ceiling vents without the use of dangerous, rickety ladders. Protect your employees while causing less disruption to your clients’ on-site staff.
In addition to a lighter weight and a reduced storage footprint, the new DBM 620 offers up to five different hood options to find the perfect fit for gathering the sample data your technicians need to diagnose heating and cooling system efficiency.
The DBM 620 also allows you to reclaim space in your work vehicle that would otherwise be taken up by bulkier, heavier devices.
If you are concerned about your technicians’ safety and are looking for a way to free up some space, the DBM 620 by Sauermann is the perfect solution to both issues.
