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.
