Why Steep Roof Rope Access Training?
The roof inspection industry is growing and safety of inspectors is now on OSHA's radar. In fact, OSHA requires that there be safety procedures implemented when inspecting roof slopes of 4/12 pitch or greater. A Total of 297,000 workers fell down on the job in 2006 (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). Falls cause more lost time than any other class of occupational accident and are the second leading cause of work-related deaths after motor vehicle crashes. Falls account for 8% of occupational fatalities (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). It is our mission to make sure that you are not another statistic.
