Roof Safety Solutions, for Ongoing Compliance and Everyone’s Safety

There’s nothing more important than keeping your work crew safe. At GSM Roofing, we feel the same way about our team, and our safety record proves it. That’s precisely why we offer a variety of roof safety solutions that prevent roof-related falls, injuries, and deaths.

Long after your commercial roof is installed, you’ll want to ensure that anyone who goes up onto the roof is protected. Our full line of roof safety products will help you to meet all OSHA fall protection requirements.

Preventing Accidents at all Times

No building owner wants to get the call that there has been an accident. A fall from your roof is terrible enough, but the OSHA fines and subsequent litigation will compound the problem. The best way to prevent this is to stop accidents before they happen.

Our skilled team will work with you to design, manufacture, and install roof safety systems like warning lines and guardrail systems that help prevent the most common types of roof accidents. Whether there’s roof work in progress, HVAC technicians are making repairs, or your own maintenance crew is up there, you can rest assured that you’ve done everything you can to make it as safe as possible for them.

Get in touch with us today to talk about our high-quality, OSHA-compliant products. We’ll even update you on OSHA’s latest roofing regulations!

Roof Hatches by SafePro

SafePro Logo

To keep your roof secure and employees safe, GSM Roofing offers rooftop safety solutions by SafePro.

We can retrofit a fall protection system onto your existing roof hatch, without any roof deck penetration and without affecting your roof’s warranty. You’ll have instant OSHA roof safety compliance—and peace of mind.

SafePro Roof Hatch Rails™

Most workers keep roof hatches open while on the roof, unaware they violate OSHA roof safety standards. Installing SafePro’s Roof Hatch Safety Rail delivers protection and instant OSHA compliance. The four-sided rail system features ergonomic handgrip side rails, a self-closing gate with no-pinch hinges, and ladder extension rails that hold steady in case of a slip.

SafePro HandsFree Power Hatch Lift™

No more fumbling around in the dark to lock your roof hatch. SafePro’s HandsFree Power Lift™ automatically locks/unlocks, opens/closes, and latches the hatch door when you enter a user-programmed code into the keypad. The solar-powered system includes a wireless remote operated from inside the building. An electric 110V feature is available, along with an optional magnetic card reader.

Skylight Screen

Skylight Cages

Unprotected skylights are an extremely dangerous hazard to rooftop crews. Most are not designed to withstand the weight of a falling worker, which is why OSHA regulations state you must cover a skylight with a screen or surround it with a railing. If you’re looking for skylight fall protection, GSM Roofing can help.

Our team can design and install non-penetrating, OSHA-compliant roof skylight cages customized to fit skylights of almost any shape and size. They’re easily installed and do not interfere with the performance of the skylight.


Improper fall protection is considered a top workplace hazard. The good news is that GSM Roofing offers solutions like roof safety railings that will minimize fall hazards and create a safer work environment for your employees or contractors working on the roof.

Our team can design and fabricate roof safety railings that are non-penetrating, OSHA-compliant, and easy to install. Railings can be customized to match any color or material finish you may need. And the best part? Your new railing system might prevent a tragic accident before it happens.

Access Ladders

Having a safe, secure way for your employees to access your building’s rooftop is very important. You want them to get to and from the location with minimal risk quickly. We work with our sister company, GSM Industrial, to help make it happen with quality, custom-built roof access ladders, and platforms.

Their expert team will design, fabricate, and install an access ladder to meet your specifications. They can accommodate virtually any size or configuration, and the finished product will meet or exceed all applicable OSHA standards.

Warning Lines

Keep your crew alert to dangerous fall hazards by installing a warning line system around your roof’s perimeter, hatch, or skylight. GSM Roofing can help you select the best type of system for your building’s roof, then design and install it quickly.

Permanent Anchors

Permanent anchors provide rooftop crews with a safe, secure place to tie off when fall arrest systems are required. They reduce the risk of a severe fall and bring peace of mind to the workers who use them.

GSM Roofing can properly install permanent anchors to your building’s roof while maintaining your roof warranty.
