Roofing and residential construction sectors have a much higher risk of falls from roofs than any other construction sectors. There are elevated risks for insurance adjusters, home inspectors, or anyone that has a need to be on a roof.
The Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR) Data Center study, “Fatal Falls from Roofs Among U.S. Construction Workers”, found that falls from roofs accounted for one-third of construction fatalities from 1992-2009. The findings suggest that workers employed by small establishments and residential construction workers may face disproportionately high risks of roof fatalities.
These findings don’t even consider adjusters, roof inspectors or any other personnel that access several roofs on a daily basis.
Let’s not forget the staggering cost of Workers Compensation claims due to falls from roofs. The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) states that the average Workers Compensation claims costs per fall from roofs is $106,648 for medical and indemnity costs. Using SteepGear could have an impact on insurance costs if we help avoid the falls all together!
