I finally landed my first roofing job. I like it. But I am concerned on what I need to do to battle “the elements” of roofing.
What do you guys use to keep the sun off your neck and face? Do you wear shorts or jeans? Shoes or boots?
Also, I have a little asthma and the smell of coal tar effects my breathing a little. Im not inhaling it but the smell of it gets me a headache. I get a little queasy from the smell. I put vicks vapor rub up my nose and it helps.
Do yo guys wear breathing masks to avoid inhaling the dust and fumes? Those chemicals in the tar cant be good for your health.
Anyway I like the job and I want to here your suggestions. They would be very helpful. Thanks.
