Roofers are among the workers most commonly exposed to fall hazards. As such, it is important for them to be equipped with tools that could provide protection against injurious, sometimes even fatal falls.

If defectively designed and manufactured, however, PFAS could pose more harm than good. If you think a construction accident could have been prevented if the safety equipment had not failed to ensure safety, a lawyer at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® might be able to help you file a case against the offending safety device manufacturer.
