AT VANGUARD – SAFETY AND FAMILY COME FIRST
OUR SAFETY PROCEDURES AND PHILOSOPHIES MAKE OUR WORK IMPECCABLE
Vanguard’s safety mission is that every person at Vanguard returns home safely at the end of each day.
The safety of our clients, their property and our employees are of primary importance to all of us at Vanguard. We are committed to the safety of our employees, subcontractors and the communities in which we live and work. We continually strive to improve our comprehensive safety program by having 100% involvement from each department and every employee.
The solar industry is evolving and new products and technologies are constantly being introduced to the market. Some of the technology is impressive but may carry a safety risk. We have seen new products, many of which come from overseas use fraudulent UL listings as well as other quality issues that could potentially create problems for your facility.
Vanguard’s long history of installations and the monitoring and maintenance of a complex mixture of solar arrays, constructed by a number of different installers, have allowed us to learn from the positives and ensure the negatives do not happen on the next array.
WE CHOOSE STEEL OVER PLASTIC
Wire Tie Safety
At Vanguard we refuse to sacrifice safety by cutting corners to save money. Even simple items like plastic wire ties could have a huge impact on the safety of your system. Plastic wire ties are known to deteriorate within only a few years, and this deterioration can cause energized wires to be dropped on your roof. Almost every solar installer uses these plastic wire ties because they are considerably cheaper. We use stainless steel wire ties which are more robust and much safer.
