Protect Hurricane Recovery Workers Installing Blue Roof Tarps

image 4 - Protect Hurricane Recovery Workers Installing Blue Roof Tarps

Reinforced plastic tarps, commonly called “Blue Roofs,” provide temporary protection for the roofs of homes and other buildings damaged by hurricanes, tornadoes or other severe weather. When employees access roofs to install these tarps, they are at risk of falls, electrocutions and other hazards. OSHA has recommendations to help keep workers safe, such as to look for downed power lines, assess the roof condition, and never walk on the tarp.
