Federation of Window Cleaners

The Federation was established in 1947 as an independent, non-profit making organisation to support the needs of window cleaners in the UK. Owned by and run only for the benefit of our members. Our purpose is to maintain and improve the window cleaning industry and to represent our membership, updating our image in line with the unrivalled federation that we have become today and in turn we continue to re evaluate the service offering we supply to our membership.

THE NEED FOR SAFETY WHEN WORKING NEAR OVERHEAD POWER CABLES

We have received reports from the family of one of FWC’s former members who has suffered a devastating accident as a result of coming close to an overhead power line.

Read More about this report through Jason’s Go Funding Charity

Every year, tragic incidents underscore the grave risks window cleaners face when working near overhead power lines. In 2021 alone, two lives were lost when water-fed poles inadvertently made contact with live wires, resulting in fatal electrocutions. These sobering events highlight the urgent need for collaborative action to enhance safety protocols in the window cleaning industry.

The Federation of Window Cleaners (FWC) has taken a proactive stance by convening a crucial meeting with extension pole manufacturers and key industry stakeholders. Scheduled for May 22, 2024, these gathering aims to forge partnerships between the FWC, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Electric Networks Association (ENA), and industry leaders to address this pressing issue.

Our thoughts are with Jason and his family and we wish him the very best for his rehabilitation.

Stay Safe!

Best regards

Andrew Lee – Chairman and Safety Officer
