Once every few issues, a JLC reader takes exception to the misused ladders, unsafe scaffolding, and sketchy fall protection sometimes depicted in our photos. "You are doing contractors and tradesmen a disservice and making yourselves look foolish when you let this stuff through," wrote one reader recently, a union roofer from the Chicago area.
So I contacted this reader — who asked to remain anonymous — to find out how his company tackles fall protection. To get some other perspectives on the subject, I also talked to several contractors about how they keep their roofing employees safe and productive while complying with OSHA fall protection guidelines. In addition, I've attended safety seminars, navigated through OSHA's extensive online resources, and contacted OSHA for guidance on specific issues — all in an attempt to gain a better understanding of the rules. What I've discovered is that while OSHA compliance can be tricky, working safely high above the ground isn't that difficult if you have the right attitude and the right equipment.

Dave Molloy knows the roofing business from the ground up. His first job for Molloy Roofing Co., founded by his great-grandfather, Harry Molloy, in 1900, was sorting nails by size for the work crews. “That was when I was 8,” he explains. “When I got a little older, I painted metalwork and filled the Dumpsters with scrap.” At 18, Molloy strapped on a nail apron and climbed the ladder that would lead him from the rooftops to ownership of the company in 2001.
