Roofing Safety: OSHA 30-hour Program

Show your organization's commitment to safety by attending NRCA University's comprehensive, four-day, roofing-specific OSHA 30-hour training program. Topics addressed in this training program are more in-depth than NRCA's OSHA 10-hour training. You will learn how to use the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to find applicable standards for your roofing work and be better able to recognize and analyze workplace hazards to find workable, OSHA-compliant solutions. You will discuss the safety hazards that occur during all phases of roofing work, including project setup; system demolition and construction; project break-down; on-site roof maintenance and service work; and roofing contractors' yard operations. In addition, the program will highlight the four most serious safety hazards in construction work according to OSHA: electrical, struck-by, caught-between and fall-related hazards. This course is designed for those with safety responsibilities, including safety directors, managers, supervisors, administrators, trainers and roofing workers.

"The OSHA 30-Hour class expanded my knowledge of safety skills. Important topics like scaffolding, fall arrest, proper use of harness, lanyard and related equipment were clearly explained. A thorough review and analysis of 29 CFR was rigorously examined. Both instructors are experts in safety issues and rules, which was clearly demonstrated by their presentations and information discussed. The class was excellent for a foreman and/or roofing contractor. A+"
—Andrew Golub, Alpha Real Estate LLC, College Point, N.Y.

"I found the instructors to be technically proficient and in tune with the needs of our industry. The program was well-balanced and considered contractor productivity as well as safety and regulatory requirements. The fact that the instructors had a background in the operation of a roofing business seemed to foster a kinship with all who attended. I give this class an A+."
