Roofers, knowing your rights may help you avoid an injury
All construction workers are at risk of experiencing a work accident. Construction sites are often fraught with hazards both on the ground and at elevations. Roofers, who routinely work at heights, are always in danger of falling. This is especially so if the people in charge of construction projects do not provide safety equipment and training.
As the weather begins to warm up, roofers will enter the busiest part of the year for construction work. We think this is a great time to talk about the rights of roofers and other construction workers in Illinois. For example, did you know that your superiors have a responsibility to help ensure your personal safety while you are working?
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), roofers have the right to a work environment that does not create the risk of suffering serious harm. Understanding this simple right can help you determine if and when you should refuse to work on a potentially unsafe project. Other examples of your rights as a roofer in the construction industry include:
In the end, it is your job to protect yourself while roofing, but we want you to remember that your superiors also share the responsibility of keeping you safe from injury. Please review our website to find out what steps to take if you have suffered injury in a construction accident.
