Keep up with the latest information and a quick way to get it.


Roofing work using tar, torches, or welding exposes workers to heat, burns, and overexertion that can lead to serious injuries and heat illness.

During work, wear light-colored, flame-resistant clothing with long sleeves and cuffless long pants to protect you from heat and burns. Collars and cowls protect your face, neck and ears. Wear a hard hat, safety boots with a non-slip sole and heel, and leather or heat-resistant gloves. Don’t tuck your pants into your boots. Face shields, side-shielded safety glasses, or goggles protect your eyes. A respirator protects your lungs from fume exposures.

El trabajo en techos usando asfalto, quemadores o soldadoras expone al trabajador a calor, quemaduras y esfuerzos excesivos que pueden resultar en lesiones graves o agotamiento por calor.

Durante su trabajo, use ropa de color claro y resistente a las llamas, con mangas largas y pantalones largos sin vueltas para protegerse contra el calor y las quemaduras. Los cuellos y las capuchas le protegen la cara, el cuello y las orejas. Use un casco, botas de seguridad con suelas y tacones antideslizantes y guantes de cuero o resistentes al calor. No se meta los pantalones en las botas. Las caretas, lentes de seguridad con resguardos laterales o gafas (goggles) le protegen los ojos. Un equipo de respiración le protege los pulmones contra los gases.
