Okay class we are gonna talk about two of the different types of hazards that are present as a roofer.
So we have discussed in an earlier lesson what a roofer is, so you all know what the career is about. Onto the hazards.
The first hazard has to do with the stability of the roof. Some roofs may be very unstable and could collapse under your weight. To prevent any fatalities, the roof MUST be checked be checked before a person goes on it. That way, the risk is greater reduced.
Next, we will discuss about losing awareness of the roof edge, if you aren't careful, you could lose track of where you are and find yourself stepping on the edge and falling off. This can cause a fatality, and to prevent that, make sure you know your surroundings each time you are moving around.
That's all for today's lesson, have a great weekend, class.
