How to Observe Safety During Roof Repairs
Homeowners and contractors alike have safety precautions to observe when it comes to repairing a roofing system. This allows you to finish quickly and efficiently, as well as reduce risks. Georgia Roofing Advisors discusses the safety habits everyone should apply in roofing projects.
During roof repairs, whether major or minor, you should set precautionary measures around your home. Set aside fragile objects in safer areas, lay sheets around the floor to gather debris and wear necessary safety gear like hard hats if you’re outside near the worksite.
Work Area Safety
You should always keep away from the work area, especially children and pets. Dangerous equipment such as drills, skill saws and hammers are often used. If you need to speak to the contractor try to do it at a safe distance or perhaps call or text them on their cell so that you aren’t putting yourself at risk. Expert contractors like Georgia Roof Advisors are highly capable of working on their own since they follow strict OSHA safety protocols during a roof repair. Our contractors are trained to understand proper ladder usage, power line safety and more.
Every roofing project calls for proper gear to finish the job with ease and safety. Roofing contractors make use of harnesses, skid-free shoes, and work gloves. For homeowners, a hard hat would suffice or distancing themselves at least five feet away from the roof when observing their roof repairs from the outside.
