Why should safety in a roofing company matter to you? Roofing is dangerous work, we strive for safety because we care about our employees and seek to minimize insurance exposure.
When it comes to roof repair and installation, your roofing company should make no compromises in terms of safety for their workers and for your home. With the appropriate training, the right attitude, and continuing vigilance, a great roofing company can provide quality roofing installations and repairs to their residential and commercial clients.
Continuing Education and Training
Persistent training programs provide roofing technicians with the knowledge they need to perform their job safely, no matter what environment they work in. From flat commercial roofs to steeply pitched residential roofs, varying conditions and footing all have an impact on the safety of a particular job.
All employees of a roofing company should have First Aid and CPR training that is kept current. Fall protection training is of utmost importance to workers doing any kind of roofing work, and fall protection measures should be followed at every jobsite. Regular safety meetings are another great way to keep employees abreast of current safety practices and refresh their knowledge.
Ladders are regularly used by roofers, and by instituting inspections and programs to keep track of their condition, roofing companies can further increase the safety of their operations. Regular maintenance of other equipment such as trucks and tools keeps every job effective and safe. Finally, inspections of the jobsites themselves by qualified safety professionals ensure that protocols are followed and hazards are avoided.
Lyons Roofing employs a full-time Safety Director who regularly ensures that the services we provide are in compliance with state and federal safety requirements. Our Safety Director also visits jobsites to ensure that our employees are performing beyond expectations.
