Roofing Safety is NO ACCIDENT
Recordkeeping Rule Update

To enhance safety awareness in the residential roofing industry, the Construction Industry Research and Policy Center (CIRPC) at the University of Tennessee proudly introduces a smartphone/tablet application for residential roofing workers. This app, Roofing Safely Is NO ACCIDENT, is available in English and Spanish for both Android and Apple devices. It guides the user through the applicable OSHA fall protection standards to determine job specific permissible fall protection systems and provides guidance on the concept of ‘feasible systems’. Special emphasis is placed on the employer’s duty to provide both training and fall protection. Lastly, the app has a tool to allow measurement of roof slope (from the ground), and a calculator to determine roof area and roofing material required.

The app can be downloaded for no charge at the following sites:
