From Mike Dahlquist:
I have over 30 years of experience in project and safety management, in both high-rise and industrial access applications. Prior to Valcourt, I managed the access and waterproofing division of a large private property owner in New York, and then moved to the high-rise access manufacturing side of the business. I also served as a director of ten suspended scaffold access rental locations for a national suspended scaffold company.
In addition, I previously served as vice president of a regional roof anchor company, and most recently, I have been working as president of the permanent installation division for an international company that manufactures permanent powered access equipment for mid-rise, high-rise, and supertall buildings.
Throughout my career, I have managed design staff and trade personnel and I have developed and taught access safety courses, including a New York Department of Buildings-approved course for all suspended scaffold workers operating scaffolds in New York City. I have also written programs and trained workers in both high-angle and confined space rescue teams.
I have been actively involved and have presented for the Sealant, Waterproofing, & Restoration Institute (SWRI), Glass Association of North America (GANA), BOMA, and other local trade groups.
Among my many roles and contributions, I am most proud of my work in creating government-approved training courses which are currently being used by many contractors as well as trade unions in multiple cities.
I look forward to working with all of you across the country as Director of the Valcourt/JOBS/Scottie’s Safety Systems division.
My name is Mike Dahlquist. I love this industry, and I’m dedicated to making sure that every day when a worker goes on a rope system or boards a scaffold to do their job, they go home safely to their loved ones that night. We owe them nothing less, and by working together, we can make sure it happens every day.
