GET GREAT GEAR. TRAIN WITH IT. INSPECT IT. PROTECT IT. AS IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT.
Everyone who wears a harness daily (and their boss) should experience a suspension. No exceptions. It's life changing.
Do you use your dorsal or sternal ring? Why?
Is your fall limited to 6 feet, 2 feet, or are you practicing
techniques that make a free fall practically impossible?
Did you buy your gear in a bucket or did you test various
equipment to find what's comfortable and suits your needs?
How easy is it to put on and take off your harness?
Does your crew like wearing their gear?
Is your gear a safety liability?
Has your crew trained and practiced how to use it properly?
Is the gear used just for photos and when the boss shows up?
Or, is it comfortably used and a natural part of the work day?
What's your rescue plan?
Why is 6 minutes critical for the suspended person?
What's your worker's compensation rate?
How much will an injury really cost your business?
As roofers ourselves, we have these same daily concerns. Our philosophy is that if we cannot do it safely, then we have not yet properly prepared. Every accident is preventable with proper planning. Our safe access techniques and safety systems are simple, easy to learn, and once practiced and naturally implemented, allow the worker to focus completely on doing quality work.
