Summer Safety

During the hot summer months, heat safety is a top priority for BENCO employees. In preparation for the hottest month of the year, there are five summer safety tips supervisors can use to prevent heat related injuries and/or illnesses on the roof:
  1. Drink cool water and drink frequently (average 6-8 oz of water per hour)
  2. Wear light weight and colored clothing that are lose fitting
  3. Schedule work that will be performed in the direct sun during the earlier part of the day and/or later part of the day when temperatures are coolest
  4. Allow for frequent rest periods to allow workers to cool down and re-hydrate
  5. Frequently check on workers. Supervisors and/or foreman should check on workers periodically and asses workers responses (monitoring for slurred speech, delayed response times, etc.)
Recent News

BENCO's team of roofers will continue to work through the hottest months in New England striding to keep our current jobs on schedule.

Our crews continue to work around the necessary thunderstorm warning challenges. A Rip and Replacement of roofing systems require the roofs to be covered properly during rain storms, whereas a new roofing system on new construction doesn't necessarily require to be covered.

In event of thunderstorm threats, our crew works diligently as a team to get old product removed and new product installed before the thunderstorm watch turns into a thunderstorm threat across the state. 

In closing, we are ready and prepared to start several recently awarded jobs throughout the month of August and well into mid-September. 

Summer Heat

Summer heat can be just as tough on roofs as frigid winter temperatures.
