Paramount Roofing regards the safety of our employees as well as any persons around the area as our main priority. We are in strict compliance with OSHA guidelines to ensure every person’s protection.
Upon arriving to your property, our trained crews review the work area and make themselves aware of all potential hazards. This is to ensure not only their safety, but to eliminate any potential liabilities.
- Training: Paramount ensures a crewmember’s OSHA approved training begins the first moment he/she joins the team. The training with classes, literature and strict testing is continually implemented with each Paramount employee.
- PPE (Personal Protection Equipment): Paramount provides all crew members with a multitude of PPEs such as harnesses, hats, gloves, smocks, foot coverings, belts, etc.
- Supervision: All Paramount Roofing Job Supervisors are OSHA trained and certified.
- Ladders: Paramount is fully stocked with the proper ladders and scaffolding to complete your project. This equipment will be set up in not only the safest but the least intrusive area of your property.
- Drop Zone: Identifiable from an elevated position, the boundaries will be displayed with cones and tape. This zone will always have situational awareness through solid verbal and visual communication.
- Fall Protection: Paramount constantly educates our crew members on safety and monitors our equipment to provide the most reliable fall protection. Harnesses, mounts, ropes, footwear and other equipment are meticulously inspected on a daily basis.
At Paramount Roofing, we are always looking for opportunities to improve our safety habits to ensure the highest quality of protection and professionalism. Please continue below for more measures of safety and what to expect when we are working together on a project.
- Safety: We recommend that children and pets be kept at a safe distance away from the work area. Generally, a 20-foot clearance is recommended as material and debris may fall off the roof as work progresses. The clearance radius may expand depending on the project size.
- Traffic: We will need access to your driveway/parking lot for the duration of the project. Please remove all cars from the garage, driveway or parking lot. This area should be cleared of all cars, boats, etc as it may be blocked for the duration of your project. You may also want to notify your neighbors that we will be working on your roof so they are aware of the traffic ahead of time.
- Landscaping: When the original roof is torn off, debris will fall to the ground around the house/building(s). We will make every attempt to protect the landscaping and surrounding property. We ask that you assist us in this process by informing us of any particular delicate items.
- Debris: There will be debris as with any construction project. We will ensure to clear all debris from the area when we remove roofing material and again upon completion of the project.
- Noise: As with all construction projects, there will be interior and exterior noise, such as banging and hammering through the process. We will be using electric and pneumatic powered tools.
- Vibration: While work is in progress, we will be loading and moving material that will cause vibrations to the interior walls and ceiling of your home/building(s). We will be very careful and respectful of your property, but total elimination of vibrations is impossible. If you feel that this vibration would cause any disturbance to items placed on the walls or ceilings, we recommend you to remove those items from the wall to prevent damage.
- Start/Completion Dates: Paramount Roofing will install/repair your roof(s) as quickly as possible, without sacrificing quality. Estimated Start and Completion dates are subject to change due to weather, previous projects, labor market, material shortage, etc.
We appreciate you taking the time to let us inform you of the roofing process and safety habits. We pride ourselves in the quality of our work and our professionalism on the job. We want to make this process as easy on you as possible.
