The latest numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show that roofing remains one of the most dangerous occupations in the construction trades. While overall workplace fatalities increased by 7.8% in 2022, roofing contractors demonstrated one of the highest workplace fatality rates in the country, with a majority of the incidents due to falls.

It’s always been a difficult and dangerous job, and while we’ve always covered the topic thoroughly as a publication, Roofing Contractor is looking to do more. Next month, RC officially launches our Safety Advisor, a digital newsletter committed to helping roofers keep their crews safe with the latest content on one of the biggest issues in any market. 

Our eNewsletter, as we like to call it, will be packed with the latest news and innovations in safety equipment, as well as offer valuable insights from safety experts industrywide on tactics and training. Whether you’re a seasoned roofer with goals to win more jobs, or a newbie with an entrepreneurial spirit, our newsletter is tailored to meet the needs of roofing contractors looking improve their safety engagement overall. 

Per our mission as a publication – and our Best of Success model of getting roofers to share their wins and losses – we will also provide actionable tips. We believe in providing practical advice that you can implement right away on the jobsite or in the office. Those strategies will help roofing contractors streamline operations, maximize productivity, and increase profits. Also, we will be delivering general industry insights helping you to stay on top of the latest trends, technologies, and best practices in this rapidly evolving industry. 

Finally, we will strive to save you time. Your time as a company and industry leader is valuable, and that’s why our safety eNewsletter is designed to be concise, yet informative. We will deliver the most important insights and updates directly to your inbox, saving you precious time and ensuring you never miss out on crucial information. 

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to supercharge your roofing business. Subscribe to our Safety Advisor eNewsletter today and join a community of forward-thinking professionals who are committed to success. We’re looking forward to sharing the latest research, innovations in product development and training with you here every month, in Roofing Contractor’s Safety Advisor!
