    Top 5 dangers of being a roofer


    Working as a roofer is not without risk. Fortunately, most of the risks can be mitigated simply by taking appropriate and sensible steps to do this beforehand. As such, you can be far safer while working in this role than you might initially assume.

    How many dangers can you name?

    1. Falls. This is the first thing most people would respond with when asked about the dangers of being a roofer. While most roofers work safely on a daily basis, there are times when they could potentially be injured because they are involved in a nasty fall.
    2. Being hit by items from above. You could be working at ground level, perhaps taking delivery of roof tiles, for example, and be hit by something falling from the roof or scaffolding above you.
    3. Repetitive strain injuries. If you thought these injuries only happened to people working with computers, think again. They can occur to anyone who does the same things day in, day out – and roofers carry tiles and do a number of other jobs repetitively as well, so this is indeed one of the dangers of being a roofer.
    4. Crush injuries. These are most likely to occur as the result of a fall. As such, you could end up being hurt quite severely internally, and end up with multiple injuries, too.
    5. Slips and trips. Yes, these can happen – and if they were to happen at height, perhaps because an object has been left lying around on the scaffolding, someone could trip and end up having a serious fall.
