Safety and roofs

CADO Admin
/ Categories: Safety

Speaking of roofs, my driving around the south and central Texas area finds that the developers are building houses in the new subdivisions with roofs that are not meant to be climbed. Steep, cut-up, mostly two stories. The old days of the accessible 4/12 ranch style house roof have been gone since the mid-1980's.

Increasingly, I am of the opinion that a preferred way to investigate these roofs are with a truck mounted crane and lift bucket. Our safety is now, more than ever, being compromised by inherently dangerous roof designs.

I believe that a revolution in a safe work environment for our industry is due. I anticipate that OSHA will be taking an active interest in the work practices of the insurance industry and their vendors with regard to this topic. And, for one, I consider it a time overdue.
