Our Thoughts on Project Safety

Construction work of any type is a high-risk undertaking, and historically roofing has one of the highest accident rates in the industry, primarily from falls.  United Roofing & Sheetmetal, Inc. takes an aggressive approach to personnel safety, both for our staff and those occupying our project sites.  The final result of our approach to safety is a safe working environment, significant savings for you from our workman’s compensation rates, and a confident, efficient work force.

  • Our first priority is site review and establishing a safety plan specific to the conditions on each project.
  • Daily safety inspections are completed by each foreman for proper ladder and warning line set up, fall protection integrity, and safe operating conditions for all equipment on site.
  • Random safety inspections are conducted by management to ensure proper use of safety equipment.
  • All personnel are trained in the use of company tools and equipment, proper roofing procedures and on site safety.
  • No open flame, hot tar, flammable adhesives, or other hazardous chemicals are used in our roofing system.
  • Regular safety meetings are conducted in house and on site to ensure comprehension and compliance with all safety policies and procedures.
