Hi Everyone,
I am currently taking the Safe Practices for the Home Inspector Course. I know this thread is dedicated to Roof Inspection but cannot find a thread on Safe Practices. Part of the course is to write a short essay on safe practices so here it is:

The first thing to do after assessing the roof should be safe to walk is properly set up the extension ladder to be used. After assuring the ladder is correctly set up and warning sign has been posted to stay off ladder and roof I would recommend stopping before stepping onto the roof. It will be much easier to spot possible hazards such as week sheathing or loose materials that could cause injury that cannot be seen from the ground. While walking the roof one must be continuously alert for dangers not only from site but feel (such as spongy surfaces) and not stop alertness until ladder is safely removed.
