GAF, NRCA and WSRCA launch safety website

GAF has partnered with NRCA and the Western States Roofing Contractors Association (WSRCA) to launch a new safety website, www.gaf.com/safety.

The site features:

  • A monthly webinar series hosted by NRCA, highlighting the most commonly cited safety issues with specific guidance about what is required to remain in compliance
  • A free archive of NRCA University safety webinars
  • A library of WSRCA toolbox talks available for download to help contractors supplement their Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training efforts
  • A GAF Low-Slope Safety Kit available for purchase, containing many common roof safety items needed on a commercial job, including an OSHA-approved first-aid kit, fire extinguisher, perimeter flags, gloves, a hard hat and NRCA's Pocket Guide to Safety

"While safety is a concern for roofing contractors, it's also one for GAF, NRCA and WSRCA," says Brian Impellizeri, GAF's senior marketing manager. "This partnership allows us to collectively leverage our assets and capabilities to deliver a resource that increases awareness and understanding of low-slope safety."
