When we think of staying healthy, we often think of eating the right foods and getting the right amounts of exercise. However, we don’t often think about the decisions we make when it comes to things such as roofing. Roofing is dangerous and sometimes it only takes one wrong decision to lead to a lifetime of hurt. Think of how many people have fallen off roofs and ladders and broken their backs. This is why it is important to make sure you have your ladder solidly planted on the ground with three points of contact.

In this video, you will see some people that did not always follow this rule. If you need a new roof, it may just be easier to hire a commercial roofing contractor.

In one particular video clip, a man is climbing a ladder to a roof. Unfortunately, the ladder was not very secure and it falls out from underneath him as he reaches up for the roof. The man is then left hanging from the roof with his feet dangling towards the ladder below. Fortunately for him, some coworkers below pick the ladder back up and help him get back on it. This could have gone much worse than it did.
