With Safety in Mind, Cell Phones are Not Allowed on the Roof

July 2, 2018

RCS Influencer Rudy Gutierrez, Shell Roofing, says that cell phones have created many safety hazards on the roof.

While cell phones have clearly changed our business culture and improved our communications capabilities, it can be a double-edged sword on the roof. Cells phones have created safety hazards and loss of production time throughout the construction industry. More than ever we are hearing of accidents on jobsites involving cell phone use. Employees are less productive due to the use of cell phones.

SHELL Roofing does not allow the use of cell phones on the roof. If we need to contact a Shell Roofing employee such as a superintendent and or the foreman, we will call and leave a message. They in turn will move the to a safe area and return the call. For our team, this is a zero-tolerance policy. Productivity is very important to maintaining profit on a project. However, safety is the highest priority at SHELL Roofing.

Rudy Gutierrez is president and CEO of Shell Roofing Solutions. See his full bio here.
