Recently, there was a story in a local UK newspaper about a roofing contractor who avoided safety measures for himself, and also allowed his workers to refrain from safety practices. The story appeared in the Construction Enquirer. Sadly, one of his employees took a life changing fall and is now paralyzed. While this sort of thing does not happen often; it certainly is not unheard of. A good roofing contractor will do a risk assessment before any job, and ensure his own safety, as well as that of his employees.
In the United States, depending on which state the contractor works, if the contractor is not properly insured, the brunt of accident medical expenses could fall on the homeowner or business owner. It is in the best interest of the person hiring a contractor to be sure the workers follow safety precautions. Most do, however, as in the case in England, some do not.
