"Do judge a roof by it's cover"
July 10, 2017
Jewett Roofing provides commercial roof maintenance in order to protect your building assets and prolong the life of your commercial or industrial roof. We make sure that our safety standards are maintained, stringent and second to none.
Like all construction fields, roofing contractors and their employees are at risk for injury, such as falling from hights. This risk poses a liability for the roofing contractor, the company they represent, and the business on whose property the accident takes place.
It is imperative that contractors observe stringent health and safety policies and procedures while on the job.
Consider the company’s record of adherence to a strict set of safety measures before hiring roofing contractors and you will be able to reduce or essentially eliminate your risk of liability.
Proactive measures can be taken to avoid liability costs. By ensuring that the roofing contractor you choose is sufficiently licensed and bonded, as well as trained on safety procedures you should sleep more easily at night.
Hiring workers that are thouroughly trained in safety protocols will go a long way towards mitigating the costs of any work-related injuries while also preventing unnecessary roof repairs or even replacements in the near future.
Look for a commercial roofing company that incorporates project-specific safety plans, new hire safety training, disciplinary procedures as well as internal and external site inspections. Make sure that their training programs fulfill the OSHA regulations.
