A Contractor’s 4 Legal Obligations to Prevent Falls

Monday, April 20, 2015 | Comments (0)

Despite legislation, industry education and safety awareness campaigns, lack of proper fall protection continues to rank No. 1 on OSHAs Top 10 Most Frequently Cited Violations. It is also the No. 1 killer of construction workers.


In 2013, 37% of the 796 workers killed in construction accidents -- 294 people -- died in falls. (To put this in perspective, view the interactive Fatality Map at www.stopconstructionfalls.com.)



Complacency is too often at fault in fatal falls. A worker may believe the job is at a low enough height to make fall protection equipment unnecessary, or the job will be done real quick, or fall protection will be too restrictive. In some circumstances, its a case of negligence, in which an employer or site manager fails to provide the right equipment, or workers have not been made aware of or fail to understand potential hazards at the site.

No matter what the scenario, it is the employers obligation to:

1. Provide proper fall protection equipment based on a hazard assessment of the work site;
2. Train staff on when and how to properly use the equipment;
3. Maintain the equipment to ensure proper operation when needed;
4.  Enforce required use of the fall-protection equipment per OSHA guidelines in the companies written safety policy.

Failure to meet any of these obligations can make your company liable should a fall-related injury or death occur. Fines, lawsuits and higher insurance premiums are likely financial repercussions. A tarnished reputation and potential loss of future business can also result, as can a loss of productivity on projects due to the emotional toll on other workers. Of course, the real incentives for maintaining an effective fall prevention program aren’t  measurable in dollars and cents.  

Cal-Vintage Roofing is committed to creating a healthy work environment, supporting appropriate training, fostering a positive attitude towards health, safety, wellness and managing work hazards. Our Safety and Illness and Injury Prevention Program adhere to all OSHA guidelines. . We believe in the safety and well being of our most valuable assets...our employees.

We did it again!  Seven Years!  We are pleased to announce that  Cal-Vintage Roofing  has earned the service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of service provided to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2014.

We are honored that our customers again took the time to recognize our efforts. We value this award because we value our customers.

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2014 winners have met strict eligibility requirements “Only about 5 percent of the roofing companies in the Sacramento area have performed so consistently, well enough to earn our Super Service Award,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “It’s a really high standard.”

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2014 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade; the company must be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

We promise to keep striving for excellence and to continue providing high quality services and the best roofing products!

Home Remodeling 2015

Monday, January 26, 2015 | Comments (0)

The U.S. Census Bureau reported back in May 2014 that roughly 75 million Americans own the homes they live in.  The Census predicted that those numbers should go up in 2015 and that sales of previously-owned homes hit a one-year peak in September. Why are more people buying houses?

This surge is the result of an improving economy, new job creation, increased growth in consumer spending, and lowering short-term interest rates to stimulate economic growth. – all good news.

When do people consider remodeling?

Are you a homeowner considering a remodeling project? If so, you may want to expedite your plans. The increased purchase of previously-owned houses should also have an effect on the home remodeling industry.

Three major factors drive remodeling decisions:

1.     *Single family home sales

2.     *Government energy tax credits

3.     *Aging housing stock

Bottom line: Older houses need more work, and 41 percent of owner-occupied American homes are over 40 years old.  More than likely, that older home needs a new roof!

“The roof is one of the most important components of every structure, yet it is often taken for granted until it falls to disrepair”

Fall Exterior Maintenance Ideas

Monday, October 13, 2014 | Comments (0)

Weather is cooling, days are getting shorter and there is  a crispness in the air?  Fall is here and winter is just around the corner…(and hopefully for us…Mother Nature will deliver us some rain :) . Here are 5 exterior home maintenance ideas that will keep your home running in peak condition all winter:

1. Maintain Your Gutters.

Remove all debris from your gutters so water can properly drain. This minimizes standing water and slows the freeze/thaw expansion process that occurs in cold weather. Clogged gutters can cause landscaping, lawn and shrubbery, walls, foundation, basement, crawl spaces and existing gutter system damage. Consider installing “gutter guards,” which will prevent debris from entering the gutter and direct the flow of water away from the house and into the ground.

2. Trim Your Trees And Remove Dead Branches.

Inclement weather can cause weak trees or branches to break and damage your home, car, utility lines or someone walking on your property. Keep an eye out for large dead branches in trees; detached branches hanging in trees; cavities or rotten wood along trunks or major branches; mushrooms at the base of trees; cracks or splits in trunks; leaves that prematurely develop unusual color or size; and trees that were previously topped or heavily pruned. If you see any signs of hazards, call a professional tree service.

 

3. Maintain Your Steps And Handrails.

Repair broken stairs and banisters to prevent falls and injury.

 

4. Inspect Your Roof.

Be proactive and prevent emergency and expensive repairs. Things to look for include damaged or loose shingles; gaps in the flashing where the roofing and siding meet vents and flues; and damaged mortar around the chimney (especially at the joints, caps and washes). If you see any signs of damage, call a professional to repair the damage.-CALL CAL-VINTAGE ROOFING TODAY FOR YOUR FREE ESTIMATE!

 

5. Inspect Your Home’s Exterior Walls. 

Look for possible weather-related damage, like cracks and loose or crumbling mortar. Wood trim and siding can suffer from deteriorating paint or become loose. Windowsills may be cracked, split or decayed.
