"Do judge a roof by it's cover"
March 26, 2015
Jewett Roofing provides commercial roof maintenance, protecting your building assets and prolonging the life of your commercial or industrial roof. Our stringent safety standards are second to none.
Like many other construction workers, roofing contractors are at risk from falling from heights. This poses a liability for both 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. Considerations of safety measures when hiring roofing contractors will essentially reduce or eliminate the risk of liability.
Proactive measures can be taken to avoid these costs by ensuring that the roofing contractor that you choose is sufficiently licensed and bonded, and trained on safety procedures. Hiring trained workers on safety protocols will go a long way in mitigating work-related injuries while preventing unnecessary roof repairs or even replacements in the near future.
Look for a company that incorporates project-specific safety plans, new hire safety training, disciplinary procedures as well as internal and external site inspections. Ensure that their training programs fulfill the OSHA regulations.
