As we near the end of the year, the earth has traveled more than 511 million miles in its annual trip around the sun. Once the holiday season arrives it feels as if the world is moving even faster. Big family dinners, gifts to purchase and wrap, decorating the house, holiday concerts by the kids; the list grows longer by the day. Every year we say we can’t get through it all but yet, we do.
Even with all this, work can’t and won’t take a back seat. You have jobs lined up between now and the end of the year that just can’t wait. In addition, you need to plan budgets, crews, and new equipment for next year. It’s all too easy to get distracted from day to day operations. However, there’s danger lurking in those distractions. Particularly when you or your crews are on a steep-slope roof.
Once you’ve climbed that ladder, and rolled The RIDGEPRO® into position, it’s time to put away everything else but safety and getting the job done. Focus on the roof, stay alert for slippery spots or dropped tools, and know where your fellow crew members are at all times. Needless to say, no cell phones should be ringing up there. Eliminating distractions at work and staying safe on the job will help ensure a good holiday season for you and your family. We wish you all the joys of this busy season.
