Are There Any Precautions to Take When Walking on Loose-Gravel Roofs


What precautions can you take when you have to go on an old roof where the granules are very loose, and the roof is quite slippery to walk on?

1. Stay away from the unguarded edges.
2. Stay away from unprotected skylights.
3. Walk slowly and carefully.

The best protection is to first of do a roof inspection.Then you need to walk very carefully over that.

First identify the rods or bars underneath the roof. Walk slowly and carefully on them.

Do you have require fall protection equipment to be used? OSHA has been cracking down on local contractors in my area.
