Whether it’s storm damage repair or roof replacement, roofing projects come with certain risks. That is why it is very important for roofing professionals like us to implement roof safety or a system of preventive measures when carrying out work on rooftops.
Here are some of the things we do to ensure that our workers are able to perform their jobs safely and properly:
Roof Safety Equipment
Having the right tools is essential for any roofing job. But in order to ensure roof safety, it is also crucial to have the right gear that will protect us while doing our work. Below are just some of the must-haves for our crew:
- Traction-based shoes – to prevent slips and falls
- Safety harness – to prevent falls or other serious injuries
- Lanyard – the “lifeline” connecting the harness to the anchorage
- Anchorage – a piece of equipment where the lanyard is attached
Like other reliable roofing contractors, we begin any project with detailed and careful planning. We identify any potential safety issues and prepare for how we might have to address them. The planning stage is also a good time to create systems and rules that would ensure everyone’s safety during work.
We go through regular safety trainings and refreshers to ensure that everyone on our team knows what to do in case of accidents, injuries, etc. It is also through these sessions that our roofers learn how to safely operate equipment and use tools. The refreshers are especially important in helping crew members retain their knowledge or update them with new best practices and industry standards.
