Many of us within the industry are called upon to inspect roofs from time to time and then produce written reports, often with varying degrees of success. There is scope for improvement. The short talk develops some of the good practice described in the current series of Technical Notes published in RCI. We explore why we inspect, how we can inspect safely, what equipment we may need, the importance of observational skills and finally the need to write up our findings.

5 key learning points for this session:

  1. Identify objectives of a roof inspection
  2. List 3 actions that can reduce the risk of a fall in carrying out a roof inspection
  3. Recognise different types roof measurement equipment
  4. Value the importance of observational skills
