Having recently read some worrying reports of roofers suffering bad falls, DPR think that now is a better time than ever to remind our customers of the importance of health and safety in our industry.

To break it down into simple terms, what we do on a day-to-day basis is understandably extremely risky if not done correctly.

We’re today outlining exactly why this is, along with explaining who benefits from stringent industry guidelines:

You and your family

A poorly completed roofing job doesn’t just place you at risk, but it also poses a danger to anyone living in the property. All well-respected and credible companies will not leave the area until everything is completely secure. If a permanent solution cannot be found immediately, for example, then at the very least a temporary fix will be issued.

Your property

As roofs can rapidly deteriorate over time, we consider a level of urgency to be absolutely necessary. Issues such as a leaking roof can gradually worsen, and may even result in some of your home’s contents getting damaged. With the amount of technology seemingly present in every modern day property nowadays, this is a huge worry.


Being leading Leeds specialists, DPR care about every single member of our local team. To ensure that they remain safe throughout the entirety of their careers with us, all members of staff are fully trained and qualified to do the job that they do. The regular site inspections that we undertake also guarantee that our standards never slip below what we deem to be acceptable.

As is evident from reading our health and safety page, DPR are completely committed to abiding by all necessary rules and regulations. Achieving accreditation at a number of nationally trusted bodies is further evidence of this.

Should you be based in the the Yorkshire area and require any help whatsoever with your domestic or commercial roof, please feel free to give us a call.
