It’s without question that every roofing job comes with its fair share of risks for the owner, workers and the structure. Thankfully, there are numerous ways to improve the safety of the project to reduce the risk of damage or accidents occurring during the project. In today’s post, Roofer Chicks, the authority on roof repairs, shares how to increase safety during a commercial roofing project.
Create Guidelines and Procedures
Before starting the project, make sure that you come up with guidelines that will make the roofing project safer for all parties involved. Additionally, you can create procedures that have safety in mind to ensure that the project will undergo smoothly so that there’s a less risk of accidents while getting the job done properly and timely. With that said, these implementations have to be properly communicated and strictly enforced.
Ensure Everyone Is Using Protective Gear
When working on any project, whether it be roof replacement, or repair, everyone involved should have the proper safety equipment equipped. This equipment include safety gloves, steel toe boots, helmets, masks and protective glasses. Workers should also use harnesses if they’re moving from floor to floor. It’s also good practice to add walkway paths for another layer of cushioning.
When planning your roofing project, it’s important not to forget assessing the risks involved when taking on the job. This allows those working on your roof to get the scope of the job and be prepared for the risks that they may run into. Knowing this, they can approach the job with confidence since they’re well-prepared for anything they may encounter while fully focusing on getting the job done.
