PUBLIC AND PROPERTY PROTECTION
It is important to protect yourself and coworkers from injury. It's equally important to protect the general public and surrounding property from injuries or property damage.
Keeping as much distance between the public and job activities by using barricades, temporary fencing, caution tape is a good way to help prevent incidents. Keep equipment, dumpsters, and kettles away from building entrances, windows, sidewalks and streets. Erect a canopy or covered walkway for entrances and sidewalks next to the building if foot traffic cannot be redirected. Parked cars are some times damaged by our activities on the roof. Be aware of wind direction and if coatings or debris are being blown off the roof. Items on the roof should be secured, especially during non work hours, so they do not become airborne and land on cars or the public in the parking lot.
Working on schools creates additional problems which can arise if there are curious children in the area. Close and lock up kettle lids, storage trailers, equipment, vehicles, etc. Keep gas cans, propane cylinders tanks, etc. in a secured area or remove them from the site. Take the ladders down and lock them up or take them off site. If the kettle is not enclosed by a fence and locked gate, stay on site until it cools down to the touch.
Building protection includes preventing water damage, one of our biggest exposures. Always keep up with the weather forecasts during the day. There may be days when a tear off has to be delayed. Even if no rain is in the fore cast, keep tarps on hand. Check and document any previous water damage to the building or contents. Be sure roof drains are clear before leaving the site and all areas of the roof are water tight. Provide the building owner or manager a 24 hr/day emergency phone number to reach a field supervisor.
