Low-Slope Roofing Health and Safety Manual


Product ID: M070

Workers who perform low-slope or flat roofing activities are exposed to a number of hazards such as falls from heights, MSDs from material handling and bending over, burns from hand-held torches and hot tar, electric shock from cables and powerlines, contact with hazardous substances, and exposure to the elements in the summer and winter.

This manual covers those hazards, among others, and recommends ways to eliminate or control them. Inside you’ll also find sections on rights and responsibilities, emergency preparedness, and personal protective equipment.

This is a comprehensive resource for workers as well as for supervisors and company owners who want to protect their workers. 80 pages. Nov 2013. 8 1/2" x 11". ISBN 978-1-894761-19-2.
