The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is sponsoring a national safety stand-down June 2-6, 2014, to raise awareness among employers and workers about the hazards of falls, which account for the highest number of deaths in the construction industry.

Mint Roofing is participating by conducting on-site safety talks during the week. It’s just one more reason to call a roofing professional to inspect or repair your rooftop, whether it’s your commercial property or your home. No roof is worth a serious injury or far worse, a life.

Be sure that whatever contractor you hire for any kind of job, uses proper OSHA-certified equipment. It’ll do more than save you a headache.
