We Practice Roofing Safety at All Times, Without Exception

At GSM Roofing, our productivity is well-known and virtually unsurpassed within the industry. That efficiency, however, will never take precedence over the roofing safety of our valued employees and customers.

Safety and productivity go hand-in-hand. When we follow safety protocols, there are fewer accidents, fewer shutdowns, fewer injuries—and that means projects are completed in compliance and on time to meet the highest quality standards.

A Full-Time Safety Manager, for Our Peace of Mind and Yours

Any time you hire the team at GSM Roofing to complete a commercial roofing or specialty roofing project, you can rest assured that the people working on the roof have been trained in safety protocol and that they’re supported by our full-time, dedicated safety manager, Sean Conley.

To ensure we provide a safe working environment for ourselves, and customers, GSM employs a full-time and fully dedicated Safety Manager who conducts our MSHA & OSHA courses and First Aid/CPR classes. Sean Conley is extremely knowledgeable about fall protection and many other safety-related topics.

Sean Conley possesses several years of EH&S experience, mostly within the Power, Steel, Chemical, Oil & Gas, and Pipe Fabrication industries. Throughout his nine years of experience, Sean earned both his Construction Health & Safety Technician (CHST) and Certified Safety Professional (CSP) designation, through the Board of Certified Safety Professionals.

In addition to a Safety Manager, GSM has a safety committee to make sure all safety-related communication is flowing properly from the employees to management and back, and that our employees are following strict procedures every day.

We are a safe and sustainable workplace, according to ISNetworld®.

Avetta has vetted us for supply chain safety, sustainability, and risk.

Ensuring the Wellbeing of Our Team and Yours with Safety Certifications

In the roofing industry, safety is paramount. There are greater chances of falls when a crew doesn’t follow safety protocols, but there are dangers for anyone onsite, including your employees and visitors.

The GSM Roofing team has dedicated itself to being the safest, most respected roofing contractor in the Mid-Atlantic region while taking on the dirty, dangerous, and difficult jobs that others might avoid. Because we set ourselves apart in those ways, you get to take advantage of limitless commercial roofing services that will not be interrupted by unsafe practices.

Here are some of the safety courses that we’ve completed to stay in compliance on your job site:

  • New Hire Safety Orientation Program
  • MSHA Part 46 and Part 48 Training
  • OSHA 10-Hour Certification
  • OSHA 30-Hour Certification
  • CPR/First Aid/AED

Drug Testing is a Safety Practice

Ensuring the safety of everyone on GSM Roofing jobs requires drug testing. We cannot afford to have impaired employees in our work areas, and neither can you. Therefore, we recognize this and require all prospective employees to submit to initial drug testing before being hired and random drug testing during their time working for us.

At GSM Roofing, we consider drug testing a basic safety protocol and a significant contributor to our impressive EMR (Worker’s Compensation Experience Modification Rating). And we know it’s a major contributor to our TRIR (Total Recordable Incidence Rates), which is one of the lowest in the roofing industry.

At GSM Roofing, Roofing Safety is not an Afterthought

For many commercial roofing companies, the safety of their crews doesn’t take priority over things like profitability and productivity. At GSM Roofing, we make safety our number one priority. By doing so, we not only ensure maximum productivity and a solid reputation in the industry, but we’re also doing what we can to send our employees home every night, safe and sound.

If that level of safety is as essential to you as it is to us, then we should talk about your commercial roof maintenance or repair. Let’s start today!

I did get a chance to inspect the roof of this church last week. There was no damage to the roof, it is actually in quite good condition since it was installed in the late 80's or early 90's. The leaks they are experiencing are at the flashing transitions to the stone masonry and one at a brick masonry chimney.

But I did want to tell you that I was very impressed with Austin, the young fellow that ran the lift for me. I am not sure I have ever had such a smooth and accurately-placed ride. It wasn't the highest roof I ever had to look at, and maybe the equipment rental was newer, but still, it was refreshing to see the competence of that young fellow.
