Class description

The weather affects decisions roofing professionals make every day. In fact, work often is suspended because of a threat of inclement weather. However, suspending work because it is too hot rarely occurs in the roofing industry.

Heat should be considered as serious a threat to roofing work as rain; the difference between rain and heat is heat presents a potential health risk. As we approach the hottest and most humid time of the year, it is important to ensure your workers return home safely at the end of the day.

During this webinar, Rich Trewyn, an NRCA director of enterprise risk management, shares:
  • The signs of heat-related illnesses.
  • How to treat workers over-exposed to the heat.
  • How to prevent future issues with workers over-exposed to the heat.
