Work smarter and safer with equipment that helps maximize job site safety. 

Part of what makes roofing such a difficult job are the safety risks involved. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, roofers have higher injury rates than the national average. Safety needs to be a priority for any roofing contractor, and job site safety is key to building a successful roofing business. When the stakes are this high, you need to make every choice possible to ensure that work environments are safe. 

The Equipter RB4000, the self-propelled, hydraulic dump trailer, is an equipment investment that will help you boost roofing job site safety. While no single piece of equipment can guarantee that job site accidents won’t ever happen, the RB4000 eliminates some of the factors that contribute to roofing injuries and maximize roofing safety. Here are a few ways the RB4000 boosts your roofing crew's safety: 

1 - Lowers the risk of falling debris 

For roofers using conventional equipment, falling debris is a near-constant hazard. The Roofer’s Buggy, designed specifically for the roofing industry, can be raised up to 12 feet high, so roofing crews can simply dump materials into the raised trailer instead of dropping them to the ground and creating an injury risk. 

2 - Eliminates hauling-related injuries 

Another risk to roofing job site safety is the heaving and hauling of roofing shingles that happens during tear-off. This can create a falling risk, and, if the roofers are tied off, it creates the potential for tangled safety lines. The Equipter RB4000 roofing equipment is compact and self-propelled, easy to position and raise virtually anywhere on a job site so employees don’t need to walk across a roof to toss off shingles and other debris.  

3 - Reduces hands-on material handling 

Manhandling materials over bushes, HVAC units, and other property features can increase the risk of injuries on the job like strained muscles, pulled backs, and even injured feet. The RB4000 offers lightweight construction, wide tires, and an easy-to-use drivetrain system that allows a single crew member to drive materials in the container exactly where they’re needed without damaging a homeowner's lawn or landscaping. It also includes a 4-foot roll-back extension feature, which enables the crew to back the loaded container over property features so roofers don't need to maneuver materials manually. 

Roofing job site safety is a must when you’re working hard to build a successful roofing business. By incorporating the right safety protocols and considering new equipment for roofing safety, you can create job sites that are safer and reduce your liability as an employer.
