Roof Work Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
Working on roofs is particularly dangerous.
How does it work?
Weather, fragile roof structure, and the height of the existing roof are all important considerations. Safety should be paramount for all roof work and a safe system of work should be in operation. Falls from roofs can result in serious injuries and death. Falls account for more deaths and serious injuries in construction than anything else and roofers account for 24% – the biggest category of worker by far – of those people who are killed in all falls from height. Most injuries are incurred from short periods to carry out a small repair or from access or egress. All workers should avoid work at height wherever possible. Proper materials and equipment such as a mobile work platform, nets, air bags, or fall harness systems. The Roof Work Toolbox Talk (UK) app provides guidance for workers and precautions that should be taken to ensure the safety of employees.
