Safety Support For Roofing Company

Lone Star was recently involved in helping a roofing company after it suffered multiple violations/fines from OSHA. As a result, Lone Star experts conducted field inspections of several job sites and found:

 

  • Employees and subcontractors had minimal understanding of the key elements of fall
  • The on-site supervisor had little knowledge of what a job site an OSHA Inspector would expect, like having a first aid kit, fire extinguisher, etc.
  • There was a lack of knowledge of what to do when confronted with an OSHA Inspector.
  • Roofers were following unsafe work practices like allowing too much slack in their safety line.

LONE STAR LOSS CONTROL’S SUPPORT

These were the underlying causes for the company and their sub-contractors to receive large fines. In addition, this roofing customer base started to lose confidence.

Lone star has been working with roofing companies for over 15 years and has found in its experience these types of problems are too common.

This type of shortcut is too expensive!
