Is your roof safe for a subcontractor to work on your roof top equipment? Are you, the owner, responsible if they fall or drop something off the roof? Most condominiums are concerned about these issues, but commercial buildings need to be as well. Safety is always a factor on your building and should be taken seriously. Are your roof hatches, perimeters, skylights protected by guard rails? Falls count for more injuries and deaths each year than anything else in construction. Permanent safety equipment can and should be installed as warranted.
