Leeds Roofers are saddened to hear that a roofer in Jacksonville (USA) is in a critical condition after he fell about 40ft through a skylight window. The roofer was working on a roof in the Southside area yesterday.

Investigators are unsure as to the cause of the incident; however it appears that he might have tripped when trying to sit down and fell through this part of the roof. The roofer, along with four others had been working on the roof of the commercial property for over 6 weeks but didn’t see the exact moment their colleague fell.

At DPR, we take roofing safety very seriously. All our roofers are qualified to the current highest levels of roofing accreditations regarding health and safety. Unfortunately in this incident it appears something very small and uncommon, not a roofer working in an unsafe fashion, has caused this horrific injury.

All Leeds roofers at DPR would like to pass on our thoughts of a speedy recovery for this roofer.
