Smart Practices Roofers Observe to Ensure Their Own Safety
Completing a roofing project comes with inherent risks. Roofers, especially storm damage restoration pros, have to work at heights using specialized tools and equipment while being careful not to slip on a damaged roofing system. As a homeowner, it’s important to hire a contractor you can trust. The pros should be able to observe good practices that ensure not just the completion of the project but also their own safety.
For KAT Construction, LLC, these are the best practices experienced roofing pros observe:
Identifying Weak Spots on the Roof
A storm-damaged roof is most likely to have lost its structural integrity. Roofers have to identify weak spots before they can begin the restoration. Doing so enables them to take the necessary precautions to avoid a potential roof collapse.
Wearing Personal Protective Equipment
As with any professionals doing inherently dangerous jobs, roofers are required to wear proper equipment in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Your emergency roof restoration specialists from KAT Construction, LLC wear work boots, eye goggles and cotton shirts with long sleeves to reduce slips and falls, cuts and eye injuries.
Using Tools and Equipment the Right Way
Power tools are dangerous on their own, which is why we use them carefully. In fact, we use all of our gear with safety attachments on them to ensure injury-free work.
Establishing Restricted Areas
People on the ground can be just as prone to accidents as the pros atop the roof. Before a roofing project can begin, experienced roofers close off work areas around the perimeter of the home to prevent access to unauthorized personnel.
