Fall Protection Gear Saves Lives
With the heavy snows New England has been facing this winter, many contractors are finding themselves on top of homes and business, cleaning the snow and ice from roofs and overhangs. While very profitable, this can be extremely dangerous work: snow and ice makes for a very slippery work surface, not to mention hidden drops and other obstacles you encounter on a roof that could cause a fall.
Slips and falls can be dangerous in any work facility, and adding a building’s height only amplifies that danger. The best case scenario in an unprotected fall from a single story building could be a broken arm or leg, and that’s being generous. That type of injury could put a worker out of work from 3 – 6 weeks with some hefty medical bills. Now add an additional story to the home or a particularly high office building, and the dangers of a fall become very serious, even fatal.
