We are Central™ to Safety

At Central Roofing Company™, nothing tops worker safety as a workplace concern. Not only is it the right way to treat employees, but safety is good business in our industry. A solid safety record attracts the best roofers to our company, keeps projects moving smoothly, and helps our insurance rates to remain reasonable – all of which comes back to our customers in the form of projects that stay on schedule and budget.

Central Roofing Company complies with all federal, state and local safety standards, and provides frequent safety and health training to our employees. This includes rigorous annual training in:

  • Health and safety
  • First aid and CPR
  • Right to know, fall protection and HAZMAT handling
  • Back safety, rigging safety, electrical safety, personal protective equipment and more
  • Lean dynamics

Central Roofing Company also has an aggressive AWAIR (A Workplace Accident and Injury Reduction) plan that includes a safety and health program conforming to the best practices of our industry with an objective to eliminate all work related injuries and illnesses. We also participate in the State of Minnesota’s Apprenticeship Program for Roofers, which includes a comprehensive asphalt and roof safety component.

Central Roofing Company’s low Experience Modification Rate (EMR) reflects how our loss prevention and control practices stack up to others in the roofing industry. We are consistently in the top 5% of Minnesota roofing companies.
