Roofing is no doubt one of the riskiest and dangerous jobs in the world. Roofers deal with danger in almost every aspect of their job. Whether it is the height at which they work, or the tools and machines they work with, the possibility of becoming injured is always present.
Many people have a huge fear of heights, but for roofers they have to be fearless in this aspect as they work from heights all day long. No matter if it’s a shed that is a few feet off the ground, or a building with multiple stories, a fall is still always a risk that is present.
Any wrong step or slip could result in a roofer slipping and falling off the roof. A fall can range from a scratch or sprain on a bone all the way to broken bones, depending on the height at which one falls from. And any injury could leave a roofer out of work for weeks to months to recover. And in serious falls, roofers may succumb to their injuries, making the fall deadly.
Roofers also handle and use tools that can easily harm them if misused or accidentally stepped or sat on. Typically roofers use hammers, knives and nail guns on a daily basis and any one of those can easily cause damage to a roofer if an accident occurs.
Outside elements such as the sun also are another factor that roofers have to endure while on the job. And for roofers working in the summertime, the sun can be particularly brutal. Along with it being extremely hot outside, roofers have to be cautious in staying hydrated and healthy as they are at risk of getting heat stroke or heat exhaustion. They may also develop skin cancer after years in the sun if they are not protecting themselves properly.
Roofers working on the roof seem like they would be the only ones at risk of getting injured on the job, but their colleagues on the ground, as well as pedestrians, bystanders and pets could be in the line of danger. If a roofer falls off the roof, they could land on a person or pet, not only harming themselves, but the person/pet they land on as well. Roofers, as well as tools, can also fall onto property, such as a car, A/C unit or pool pump, and easily damage it.
Like any other type of situation where someone gets hurt or property gets damaged, you are going to be subjected to an angry customer or worker and they will most likely file a lawsuit or claim against you for the damage or injuries they sustained. A roofer or customer will want to seek compensation for their medical bills or damage replacement cost as restitution. And if you do not have roofing insurance, you could see a lot of your money going toward that lawsuit or claim and you have no safety net.
