In today’s video I just want to establish some clarification in relation to the safety of workers on your roof. Due to the fact that roofing is a job where we are often working at heights, we have to put a plan in place to make sure safety of our workers is considered. The three main things that you see when people are working on a roof is, one, scaffolding. Most people understand and know what scaffolding is, but it’s often confused with edge protection. Edge protection is simply a fence that goes around your roof so that should a worker fall they hit the fence. The third thing is harnessing. We can put harnessing in place where either scaffolding or edge protection is either too expensive or not necessary. As long as we can ensure that the safety of the workers, are not going to risk falling at heights, we have ensured the safety of the workers on your roof.
