Roof Safety Inspection Checklist Template

Use this template for roof work to check safety regulations before starting the safety check. Sketch and photograph the workers and the work to be performed on the site. Check permits, weather conditions, roof safety equipment, signage, and proper PPE before workers begin work. Confirm that roofers are trained in workplace safety and informed about communication protocols. Assess the condition of accesses, walkways, and crash barriers. Identify possible openings that could lead to slips and fatal falls. Complete the inspection with an overall assessment and a recommendation on whether or not the roofers should continue their work.
