Residential Roof Safety Program

Eagle Cornice Co. Inc strives for the safest worksite possible. We adhere to all State, Federal, and Local saftey standards. We develop comprehensive plans and procedures to ensure the on going safety of all our employees, sub-contractors, clients, and pedestrians. In the construction industry, there is a “zero tolerance” policy that requires 100% compliance to all safety procedures regardless of the trade. Here are some of our safety practices that we at Eagle Cornice Co., Inc utilize to help achieve our goal.

Safety Equipment:

Depending on the height and slope of the roof we implement a variety of residential safety equipment and proceedures. Being job site safe not only requires the right knowledge and training but also the most up to date and approved equipment. Here at Eagle Cornice Co., Inc. we provide safety equipment approved by OSHA to ensure a safe jobsite.

-For roof slopes that are too steep to safely walk on, roof jacks and toe boards are implemented.
-When necessary and as required by OSHA PFAS (personal fall arrest systems) are used.
-We utilize ridge hooks and chicken ladders to safely move up and down the slope of the roof.
-For material hoisting we use laddervators, to ensure that our employee's do not have to take un-necessary risks by carrying these items up by hand.

Employee Training: 

When addressing commercial roof safety the correct proceedures and rules are very strict. Weather the project is a private small buisness or a public school. They all require extensive training and a variety of equipment depending on job variables. All of our employees have a minimum 10 hours of OSHA certified training, and select key personel have OSHA's 30 hour saftey certificate. All Eagle Cornice Co, empoloyees are trained to setup and utilize all of the proper saftey equipment to ensure a safe work environment.

JHA’s (Job Hazard Analysis) Inspection:

Prior to each job Eagle Cornice starts, a JHA inspection is performed. This is done so that we can address all potential hazards that may injure an employee, the home owner their guests or any other person for the duration of the project. Included are ways to avoid these hazards and keep the work place and personnel safe.

 It is our company goal to have and maintain a “perfect” safety record with no lost time or wages.  Being able to use our solid foundation in safe work practices, achieving perfection is certainly attainable.  We will continue to be safe, train, and be trained to keep up with the modernization of safe work practices.
