Companies in Bismark, ND were recently fined for not using the proper safety equipment while working on residential roofs. The inspections occurred after one employee feel 20 feet from a roof while using a blow torch. When inspectors arrived on the site the next day they found that workers on the site were still not using the correct safety rails. The company's negligence resulted in fines that were likely higher than what they would have had to pay for a fall protection safety rail system.
Unfortunately, this isn't an uncommon occurrence for roofing companies across the country. Some companies attempt to skirt federal safety rules in an attempt to save themselves either time or money and only change their procedures after they've been fined by inspectors or there has been an injury--or even a fatality--on one of their job sites.
