There are a lot of tall buildings with dirty windows in the state of Washington that rely on window washing companies to clean them. Most workers in this industry are exposed to hazards:

  • Chemicals.
  • Electrical.
  • Environment (Weather).
  • Falls.

These hazards could result in serious injuries or even death.
