Local window washers cleaned up their safety skills Friday after an accident killed one worker and seriously injured another last week.

Members of Local 32 BJ held the class to reinforce the danger that exists in this line of work, while instructing workers on what to do in the event of an emergency.

Last week, brothers Alcides and Edgar Moreno fell 47 stories from an Upper East Side high rise.

Edgar Moreno died in the accident. Alcides remains hopistalized.

The brothers had reported safety issues to their employer, City Wide Window Cleaning, but were reportedly told the scaffolding was safe to work on.

“Obviously since this accident occurred, this tragic accident occurred, we felt compelled again to bring our members in and to ensure that everyone is complying with the safety standards of the city and the state, and to make sure that our members are safe and secure,” said Gerard McEneaney, chairman of the window cleaners union.

The class began with a moment of silence in memory of Moreno. The state Labor Department is continuing its investigation of the incident.
