I also suggest ordering this book: http://www.osha.gov/doc/jobsite/index.html and reading this section: http://www.osha.gov/doc/jobsite/index.html#Fall Protection1

I know of a framing crew that was fined three times last year from OSHA for lack of using fall protection. Fines totaled over 25k. He is now bankrupt.

So the roller skates are no good now?

So on an existing roof, how do you ensure that the brackets are in joists and not just the decking where the nails could pull out? How do you ensure that the joist can handle the drop loads for a safety harness that OSHA requires, especially on an older home that probably does not meet the drop load requirements?

have subed out to a slate roofer to walk on roof and "paint" trim around dormer on a slate roof. not only is it dangerous, but if one broke he was there to fix it. painting was not that great but the HO wasnt going up there with a magnifying glass. Other wise i agree with tightly tied boots and cadillacs.

I don't think you need to worry about it if you use three or four deck screws in each one. Pulling at a right angle they will hold a lot.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Thanks Everyone

I googled those cougar paw shoes. I am interested although they are expensive and not available in Canada. Debating about ordering them...
