Abstract
Roofing contractors are among the most hazardous industries. Since liquid tar is hot and slick, roofers are at high risk of slips, falls, burns, and hazardous materials exposure. A total of 105 roofers died or were hospitalized in Oklahoma burn centers from work-related burn injuries from 1988 to 2006. Burns may cause serious physical pain, psychological trauma, and economic loss.
