Roofs are arguably the most important part of a house or building. It protects us from the outside elements such as rain, dust, and heat. And ensuring a roof is put together and held together correctly, is a big responsibility. Roofers take on that big responsibility and are met with dangers at every aspect of their job from the tools they use to the heights they work at, they can easily get injured.
Roofers use a variety of tools when working on roofs. They typically use utility knives, hammers, hatches and nail guns- all of which can injure a roofer if it is accidentally misused or misplaced.
Roofs are almost always at a height and roofers take a huge danger in working from heights daily. It does not matter if the roof is 10 feet above ground or a hundred feet above ground, a fall from any height could cause an injury. Sure, the small heights will most likely only cause non-life threatening injuries such as scrapes, bruises or sprains, but a fall from 100 feet and above can cause broken bones and even be life threatening. So roofers put their lives at risk everyday they work on roofs.
Another dangerous factor roofers encounter is the sun. And the sun is not so friendly in summer months as temperature rises, making the risk of heat stroke or heat exhaustion more prevalent. The sun can also lead to skin cancer after years of exposure if a roofer is not careful in protecting themselves.
But roofers working solely on the roof are not the only ones put in danger. Roofers taking a break on the ground, or simply helping from the ground can be in the line of fire if a tool or roofer falls off the roofer and lands on them. Also, property can be damaged by a person or tool if it is in the way. Property can include pool pumps, cars, sheds, a/c units and more. And whether a person needs medical attention or gets hospitalized or property needs to be fixed or replaced, as a roofing contractor you can bet on that person filing a lawsuit or claim against you.
