Why Roofing is Dangerous
Listed as No. 4 in USA Today’s list of the top 25 most dangerous jobs, roofing comes with risks that are hard to avoid. Working in high places always presents the threat of falling to the ground, which can have disastrous effects. If people are not careful while they are doing a roofing project, they could even face falling equipment that lands on and injures them. In 2016, 47 out of every 100,000 roofers experienced a fatal accident while they were on the job.
We Use and Inspect Our Equipment
Although roofing comes with risks that are not always easy to handle, our team never cuts corners when it comes to safety. The members of our team use safety harnesses when they work more than a few feet above the ground to minimize the odds of falling. These harnesses allow them to move without restrictions but lock when they detect a fall. Not only do we have the top safety equipment in the industry, but we also inspect it to ensure that everything is functioning properly.
We Hire the Right People for the Job
To safely work in the roof construction industry, people need to be in good physical shape, intelligent and aware of their surroundings at all times. Hiring the right people for the job is a vital part of keeping everyone away from the dangers that come with the task. When we look for new team members, we only hire those who are fit and smart enough to perform their daily obligations safely and efficiently. We hold training sessions that take the security of our team members to a whole new level, giving everyone peace of mind.
