Residential roofing is a highly risky job. Roofers spend a lot of time on the highest point of a house. Their work involves a lot of bending, kneeling and lifting. The risk is even greater when they work on steep-slope roofs. In such a scenario, even a small mishap can lead to fatal injuries.
Residential roofing professionals rely on safety equipment for complete protection. Lincoln Equipment offers a complete range of reliable and high quality roof safety equipment near Pittsfield MA. We stock over 200 safety equipment items including safety harness kits, body harness, fall protection systems and ladder safety equipment.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), around 20% of the total accidents at work places in 2013 happened in the construction industry. A total of 796 workers in the construction industry died due to workplace accidents. Of these, 294 deaths were due to falls. OSHA has concluded that most of these deaths were avoidable, if only proper harnesses and fall protection equipment were in place.
According to OSHA, any worker working within fifteen feet from the edge of a roof needs protection. Some of the most prominent hazards on roofs are roof edges, multi-level roofs and skylights. Roofs that have a drop of a few feet or are connected to other buildings are dangerous as well. We offer a wide range of safety equipment that comply the OSHA regulations.
