J.S. Goray Inc Completes Sealant Replacement on OSHA Directorate of Training and Education
At J.S. Goray Inc, we pride ourselves in our attention to detail for workplace safety. Our firm has been active in the Associated Builders and Contractors’ Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) for over two decades; and has received multiple Platinum and Diamond level awards.
Recipients of Platinum and/or Diamond level awards are 330 and 770 percent safer than the average company. So when a client asked us to take on a project at the OSHA Directorate of Training and Education, we were well prepared for the challenge. In addition to the OSHA Directorate, this building houses an OSHA Training Center, with classrooms on all 3 floors.
Scheduling work around on going safety and training seminars was a exceptionally challenging, yet handled wonderfully by our technicians. OSHA was holding "Fed Week" during a portion of our project; a week with over 200 intergovernmental guests working onsite. Working with the Property Management and OSHA's personnel, we were able to complete the project with minimum disruption, and provide a fantastic repair to the building envelope.
This project entailed replacing all 100% of sealants on a 3 story precast building that houses the OSHA Directorate of Training and Education. The Material specified for the project was DOW Corning 790 Silicone Building Sealant. The sealant was applied and finished using tools from Albion Dispensing Solution. Access for the work was provided via a pair of articulating boom lifts, in addition to step ladders for ground level work. All technicians working in the Aerial Work Platform (AWP) we outfitted with the latest fall protection systems. Our technicians are set up with Miller Fall Protection Self retracting lifelines, and 3M Self-Rescue Devices. These safety devices are in addition to ANSI approve safety harnesses, and all required PPE.
