From working at heights to using power tools and ladders, there are inherent risks involved in roof tiling work.
The Roofing Tile Association of Australia and its members take roof safety very seriously, and want all tilers to go home safely after a day on the roof. We therefore want to minimise and create awareness around the risks involved with installing our members’ products.
Please familiarise yourself with the resources below which provide guidance on good work, health, and safety practices for roof tiling.

Industry Safe Work Videos
The Roofing Tile Association of Australia has developed an industry code of conduct on safety for roof tilers through a series of safety videos that can be viewed on your mobile device.
The aim of these videos is to educate roof tilers and apprentices on key safety procedures as well as how to manage the risks involved in roof tiling work.

Safe Use of Ladders to Access Roofs
The RTAA safe use of ladders to access roofs video demonstrates not just how to use a ladder safely but also what ladder to choose, how to set up your ladder correctly and how to prepare your site and team for safe work.
The RTAA Working at Heights video explains how to prepare and make sure any work done at heights is safe. This means controlling onsite risks and having safety mechanisms in place as well as how to work on the roof in a safe manner.
Safe Use of Power Tools When Working on Roofs
The RTAA Safe Use of Power Tools When Working on Roofs video demonstrates how to ensure all onsite power tools are safe to use and how roof tilers can use them safely.
