Ladder Roof Access: The Critical Moment

Staying Safe During Transition

Moving from the ladder to the roof is a very serious safety concern. Falls are very likely to happen during this transition.  According to a recent article in Roofing Contractor:

The direct cause of most roof-ladder-access accidents can be traced back to one or more of the following acts or conditions:

  • Poor housekeeping.
  • Non-compliant use.
  • Improper footwear.
  • Defective or damaged ladders.
  • Lack of ladder stabilization.
  • Inadequate training.
  • Insufficient competent person (CP) site safety audits.
