Back to the BASICs “roof Ladder, Guide Man and foot placement” We all get in a rush to get the job done and we ALL make mistakes lets learn from them! “ Those that don’t make mistakes are not doing anything”!

Stay Safe Brothers!

I agree with Jason in that you need a guide man/hook man and that you need to watch that foot placement. But on a roof with that pitch I would pass on a roof ladder. Bringing a roof ladder adds that much more time to the event, especially when we are trying to get up there get it done and get down. If you are using the roof ladder just to displace your weight, do you really need to be standing on the roof at all? If it was a steeper pitch then I would say bring the ladder. Just my 1/2 cents.

Without saying what wisdom has been provided by mike and brother lane, THINK! I sent this pic on my email list earlier today as it was forwarded to me from a brother in ATL. These are the types of pics we need on our ‘fridges and locker doors at the house, rather than scantily clad women- THINK! Every day, about your job, your kids, your wife, hell- your ex-wife who might get the money if you havent updated your beneficiary card! We’re not perfect, but we are among the few still alive to read this blog and be blessed with the opportunity to THINK about what we are doing!!
