Work Safe

Roofing

It comes as no surprise that the greatest safety hazard to those in the roofing industry is the risk of falling. While most are well aware of the risk, the steps and procedures to prevent a falling accident should be regularly communicated and reinforced with everyone involved in your worksite.

Understanding the need for safety in your roofing operation is not only critical to the well being of your employees, it’s also crucial to the well being of your business. Helping to ensure your workers’ safety also helps keep your business profitable.

Accidents can be fatal
Worksite accidents can do more than just injure employees—they can be fatal. According to the 2010 Bureau of Labor Statistics, falls represented more than 40% of fatal accidents among roofers. An additional 10% of fatal accidents were the result of contact with objects and equipment.
