Roofing is a dangerous industry no matter how you look at it. In fact, it is one of the top 10 most dangerous jobs in North America, and one of the top 5 in the state of Virginia. From the use of power tools to the fact that they are working over 10 feet off of the ground almost the entire day, roofers have experience with danger. However, because they are professionals, roofers also have systems in place that allow them to safely complete their work at little to no added risk. Here are the top 3 reasons why roofing is dangerous, and what our team here at Cenvar Roofing does to make it more safe.
Roofing professionals spend most of their days working, on average, between 12-25 feet above the ground. This automatically introduces the risk of falling into their work environment. However, Cenvar Roofing contractors negate this risk by using fall protection equipment like harnesses to ensure that if an accident does happen, our contractors are protected.
Roofing contractors utilize power tools, such as nail guns, to do their work well. This introduces risk, as power tools can be very dangerous if an accident or malfunction occurs. Cenvar Roofing contractors are specifically trained in the function and operation of power tools in order to minimize the risk of an accident occurring.
Roofing contractors are called to the scene when damage has already occurred on the roof. This damage can result in uneven surfaces, soft spots, missing shingles, and slippery spots on the roof, raising the risk of trips, falls, and other accidents. Cenvar Roofing negates this risk by providing fall protection equipment for all of our crews.
As you can see, working on top of a roof is quite a dangerous undertaking, and if done without proper training and safety equipment, a single mistake can be devastating. This is why it is important to hire a professional when it comes to roof repairs. If you’re in need of a professional roofing company, look no further than Cenvar Roofing!
