No New Posts roof safety
Safety reminder. We did a job yesterday maybe 4/12 roof pitch. My guy gets on roof to check pipe boots and a quick look over as she is selling house. He goes maybe 10' and slips. It was a shingle over and the shingles slid loose. It was on a 10' x 10' area and the shingles were high nailed. The wind must have lif...

No New Posts Eye Wash Stations
I'm shopping around for an eyewash station to mount in the truck and also small eyewash bottles for the guys to carry in their pockets. Where are most of us mounting or storing the eyewash stations and first aid kits in the trucks?

Poll How many people actually wear a mask?
Do you wear a respirator?  Pushing SH every day, and AC's modules, would make me believe we should. But every video I see, every job I watch....no one is wearing one.....not even employees. So...poll attached....do you wear one?

No New Posts Cougar Paws

(Josh) I was looking at them but after reading the literature about the "pads " only lasting a few jobs @ $30.00 a pair I thought that was possible worth the return BUT the unknown, walking in a 4% SH solution. (they don't talk about that) Do t...

No New Posts Safe Working Load?
I just received 160' of poly rope (Rope King) from Amazon for about $38. Just noticed that it says "Breaking strength is not considered safe working load (SWL) limit." Does that mean I had better not use it for harness on roof? I don't plan to lead any horses up there ... http://www.amazon....

No New Posts Safety bonuses anyone?
JUst throwin' it out there to see if any one gives them out or not. Being an ironworker by trade I know that safety is an everyday all day thing. This is driven into our heads constantly because complacency in the workplace is the #1 cause of accidents on the jobsite. We always do a weekly drawing for a gi...
