Roofing Safety Equipment

Roofing is a dangerous job, and it is important to provide a safe working environment for all employees in your roofing company.  It is not only crucial from a safety standpoint, but also from a legal standpoint.  Osha has strict rules about job safety that will result in huge fines if not followed.
