Jan. 23: Use Care When Clearing Snow from Roofs
Posted On January 28, 2013
The CSST reminded employers and workers that clearing snow from roofs can be hazardous. Some safety tips:
- Whenever possible, do the work from the ground.
- Assess the risks associated with weather conditions, the amount of snow and the roof’s location and condition.
- Ensure workers are protected from falls when they’re exposed to a fall of more than three meters.
- Determine the spill area for the removed snow and deny access to it with signs and a rope boundary.
