Yes, roofing jobs are downright dangerous, what with numerous cases of people falling off ladders or roofs and other related injuries all over the country. That’s why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set up and enforced a safety standard that’s meant to protect everyone and everything on the site of your roofing project—your family, your property, and, of course, the roofers as well.
That said, a lot of roofing contractors in the area don’t know about OSHA’s safety guidelines—and not having the proper training and knowledge on OSHA standards poses risks to both the homeowners and the contractors themselves. Serious accidents, such as roofing mishaps, can turn into costly lawsuits.
Working with the construction sector of the National Occupational Research Agenda and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, OSHA aims to raise awareness among employers and workers about common fall hazards. Therefore, OSHA offers training in ladder, scaffold, and roof safety, which involves correctly using fall safety equipment to avoid falls and save lives.
