Another component of practising roofer safety is common sense safety. When working, roofers should take their time, as working so quickly and trying to get the job done faster than it should be done is bound to bring unnecessary accidents to the work site. Another way to prevent accidents is to adapt protection to the numerous projects that are taking place. This means talking to the roofers and getting a shared understanding with them about the value of protection on that specific work site. Roofer is one of the authority sites on this topic. Discourage dangerous workplace conditions, too. Leading by example would also allow the roofing workers to know, understand, and apply them while on the job site with their own jobs.
Keep your place of work tidy. This should be common sense to everyone, but you would be shocked at just how many roofers do not even think twice about keeping the job site clean and coordinated. Less hazards, such as tripping, and identifying all danger areas and avoiding them makes for a professional job and crew. The most efficient job sites are supervised by the clean-up team and often cleaned up so that the work just flows easier.
Both roofers use some form of ladders, and used properly, these ladders can be a roofer’s best friend, used poorly, they can be a roofer worst enemy. There are many kinds of ladders, and the easiest to use are the Type 1A ladders. Roofers should always use ladders that conform to local codes and/or are OSHA approved. The number one thing to search for and clean should be to inspect the ladder rungs, to inspect the ladder functions, the cables, pulleys, and to clean any tar, oil, or dirt from these rungs. Don’t ever use broken ladders, throw them out, and never trust homemade ladders. Use ladder protection at the end of the day, never leave ladders unattended, only allow experienced roofers to use ladders, never homeowners, take down all ladders on the job site and lock them overnight together on the field
