How Kodiak Beats The Heat

Our Team Is Our Family. Safety is Always Priority #1

While popsicles, pool days and splash pads are excellent ways to beat the heat, roofing workers aren’t as lucky, and still have to provide the important services people rely on to protect what protects them. Nowhere is the summer heat felt more intensely than on a rooftop.

With record-breaking heatwaves becoming more frequent, keeping our roofing crews safe becomes an even greater priority here at Kodiak. It’s not just about following the rules; it’s about protecting the people who make our business strong – our dedicated roofing professionals.

Riding the (Heat) Waves: How Kodiak Keeps Our Team Safe

Summer heat isn’t a game. It can lead to heat stroke, dehydration, and other serious health risks. That’s why Kodiak takes a multipronged approach to keeping our roofers cool and collected:

  • Early Start, Early Finish: We schedule work to avoid the hottest parts of the day whenever possible, focusing our projects on the cooler mornings and evenings.
  • Hydration is Key: We provide easy access to water and electrolyte-rich drinks throughout the day, with regular hydration breaks and check-ins required.
  • Shade Seekers: We set up shade canopies whenever feasible and utilize cooling neck wraps and breathable, reflective clothing.
  • Safety Buddy System: Our crews work in pairs, allowing them to monitor each other for signs of heat stress and ensure everyone stays safe.
  • Heat Awareness Training: All Kodiak roofers undergo regular heat safety training, learning to recognize the dangers and how to prevent heat-related illnesses.

Why is keeping our employees safe such a big deal? It’s simple: a safe, healthy team is a happy and productive team. They can focus on the job at hand, delivering top-notch quality and craftsmanship for our clients.

Hiring a Contractor That Keeps Safety a Top Priority

When choosing a commercial roofing contractor, prioritizing safety goes beyond just checking a box. Here’s why it matters:

  • Reduced Risk, Reduced Costs: A contractor with a strong safety record minimizes the risk of accidents and injuries, leading to lower worker’s compensation costs and a smoother project flow.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing your project is being handled by a safety-conscious team removes a layer of worry from your shoulders.
  • Quality Work from a Focused Team: Employees who feel valued and safe are more invested in their work, leading to a better end-product and fewer mistakes.

At Kodiak, safety isn’t just an afterthought for a slogan – it’s the foundation of everything we do. We believe in protecting our team, and that commitment translates into exceptional results, with projects that are done right the first time. Our clients trust our commitment to providing services they can rely on for years to come.
