Structures with sloped roofs do come with some challenges. One challenge is their tendency to shed ice and snow that can fall on top of unwary people standing beneath the eaves. Fortunately, those accidents are easy enough to prevent by installing snow guards on the roof. Another big challenge for sloped roofs is just making sure that contractors can work on them. Toeguards are one way to help contrtactors on the roof and it's simple for contractors to install and remove them when installing DaVinci polymer roof tiles. Here's a great video that shows you how it's done.
Contractors should always follow OSHA safety requirements and new fall protection standards.
