If you already on Brauner Safety’s email list, then you are probably aware of the latest Sievert tools that have been added to the Brauner Safety Services products list. To provide you with more detail and information about each of the latest offerings from Sievert, here is a quick list and links to help you stay informed and make a decision on the products that are right for you and your team:

Sievert – EBK-1 & EBK-2 Granule Embedders

Embedding granules on a granular modified bitumen membrane is becoming more of a requirement in the industry.  For this reason, Brauner Safety Services is pleased to now offer Sievert’s new EBK-1 and EBK-2 bedding tools. What’s the difference between the two?  To put it simply, the EBK-1 is Sievert’s detail kit which is recommended for hard-to-reach places, while the EBK-2 is the stand-up kit which is better for longer lap runs. Both kits come with a fully adjustable and removable embedding tool with handle attachment; this feature provides the roofer with 2 torch tools in 1. Product features include:

  • Fully adjustable and removable bedding tool and handle
  • Quality steel construction
  • Large steel roller for excellent coverage and even penetration of granules
  • Options include as a kit or individually

Sievert – PROMATIC PNS 4, RKH-4S & URK 4

The PNS-4 Hot Air Self-Adhered Kit works well for repair and small heating jobs – particularly details or heating self-adhered membranes without an open flame.

The RKH-4S is a propane powered Hot-Air Welder that is less expensive and more convenient than electric versions. It is considered to be the best option for SAFE and FAST repairs of membranes – No open flame!

The URK-4 is the most convenient repair kit available for repairing modified bitumen and roofs. The kit contains one handle and two burners, providing repair crews the ultimate in flexibility.

On the Importance of CPR, First Aid, and AED Training

If you follow Brauner Safety Services on Twitter or subscribe to the quarterly newsletter, then you are most likely already aware that Brauner has launched a new training program – CPR, First Aid and AED Training.  As a safety training and consulting firm, Brauner Safety Services is proud to launch this vital and lifesaving program that is aligned with and provides certification through American Red Cross, the gold standard in CPR and First Aid training.

Why American Red Cross?

When it comes to lifesaving skills and certification, not all programs are created equal. With American Red Cross (ARC), you are gaining expert and proven instruction through an organization that has been active and operating for more than 140 years. Behind every American Red Cross training program stands the Scientific Advisory Council, a volunteer body of Red Cross science and medical experts dedicated to ensuring that what you learn is based on the latest and best emergency science (Source: American Red Cross).  ARC offers the next era in lifesaving training, and its programs are unmatched in design and flexibility, enabling participants to learn lifesaving skills in less time.

CPR, First Aid and AED Training Benefits

Anything can happen in a workplace or on a job site, and for this reason, it is crucial that crews and employees are trained for life-threatening situations. From cardiac arrest and stroke to anaphylactic reactions and drug/opioid overdose, this lifesaving training will prepare your team to be ready and safe in a health emergency. The truth is that minutes can make the difference between life and death, and by preparing your staff to respond to any of these incidents, you are taking the right steps to a safe workplace.  

When considering cardiac arrest alone, CPR is vital to survival.  Just consider these facts:

  • If someone in cardiac arrest receives CPR immediately, they have a 45% increased chance of survival compared to no CPR.
  • 9 out of 10 people who are in cardiac arrest out of a hospital setting have a 10% chance of survival – 90% do not survive without CPR.

In addition to being prepared for health emergencies and keeping your crews safe both on and off the job site, CPR, First Aid, and AED training through Brauner Safety Services offers a variety of benefits including:

  • Save time and money
  • Decrease insurance and liability
  • Experience personalized, interactive learning and flexible training
  • Receive the latest and updated lifesaving skills
  • Receive American Red Cross Certification
  • Continue learning with take-home literature

Whether your training is required by OSHA, part of your company policy, or you simply want a safer workplace, Brauner Safety Services offers flexible training solutions designed to meet your business guidelines and stay within your budget.

Upon successful completion of courses, you will earn certification that satisfies OSHA-mandated job requirements. To learn more, you may view/download the latest program flyer here.  To schedule your CPR/First Aid/AED Training, contact jim@braunersafety.com

Join the 2022 National Safety Stand-Down

Brauner Safety Services is proud to support OSHA’s 9th Annual, National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction by increasing awareness and sharing valuable resources. The event is scheduled from May 2-6, 2022. This year, OSHA is particularly interested in raising awareness among Hispanic/Latino construction workers about fall hazards and reinforcing safe work practices to help prevent fatalities and injuries from falls.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s website, “fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 351 of the 1,008 construction fatalities recorded in 2020 (BLS data). Those deaths were preventable. The National Safety Stand-Down raises fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries.”

So, what is a Stand-Down? OSHA describes a Safety Stand-Down as a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety. Anyone who wants to prevent hazards in the workplace is eligible to participate; it is simply a matter of taking time out of the week to focus on Fall Hazards and reinforce the importance of Fall Prevention. This time also provides opportunities for teams to communicate about safety and employees to talk to management about fall and other job hazards that have come to their attention in the workplace and on the job.

Companies can conduct a Safety Stand-Down through a toolbox talk, staff meeting or other safety activities (safety equipment inspections, rescue plan development, job site hazard assessment). Resources to get started include: Suggestions to Prepare for a Successful “Stand-Down” and Highlights from Past Stand-Downs. OSHA also has a helpful Events page that can be used to connect and find free and public Stand-Down events in your area.

Once employers have participated in the event, they will be able to provide feedback to OSHA about their Stand-Down, as well as download a Certificate of Participation.

OSHA’s 2022 National Safety Stand-Down resources are now available to assist in engaging workers and employers. You may choose to participate in the event, promote it, or both. Participating in and promoting the event is easy and can go a long way in preventing fatal accidents and injuries on the job.

To get started, here are a few helpful resources that you can access now, allowing plenty of time to plan for the event in May:
