Make Roof Safety a Priority this Year
Updated: May 16
Most business owners and property managers don’t spend much time on their roofs, so roof safety isn’t a top consideration. Yet it’s not uncommon for maintenance and repair workers to go onto the roof to work on HVAC equipment and other building systems.
Because of this, it’s important to have proper safety equipment installed on your roof. A bit of foresight now may prevent a serious accident later.
Roof Safety Systems
Roof safety systems include the following:
Personal fall arrest systems which include an anchor, a harness, and a lifeline.
Fall-arrest systems on access ladders taller than 24 feet. Edge protection systems, including guardrails or warning lines near the edge of the roof.
Covers on hatches, vents, and skylights strong enough to prevent someone from falling through.
