Cedar Rapids, IA (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

Finding a roofing contractor as vigilant about safety as facilities and businesses are today can be daunting. Building owners, facilities managers, and plant engineers need objective information about how to evaluate the safety of contractors they're considering employing. National roofing contractor D. C. Taylor Co. recently released a white paper to aid these professionals by providing industry-specific safety guidelines.

Entitled “Evaluating the Safety of Roofing Contractors,” this white paper provides facilities professionals with knowledge that can help them develop a set of criteria to aid in the selection of a contractor. Among the information included is:
1)    A seven-step checklist regarding what safety information to collect from a roofing contractor.
2)    Minimum safety training requirements for roofing contractors.
3)    A definition of important safety ratings, such as Total Incidence Rate, Experience Modification Ratio, and Lost Workday Incidence Rate.
4)    An explanation of what pre-project safety planning entails.

D. C. Taylor Co. has more than 60 years of experience installing, repairing, and maintaining roofs at commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities. The company's below-average incidence rates are proof of its commitment to maintaining a safe environment for its workers, as well as customers' property and personnel. In 2009, the National Safety Council awarded D. C. Taylor Co. with a Perfect Record Award for operating 710,845 employee hours without occupational injury. The Iowa-Illinois Safety Council has recognized the company twice since then (in 2010 and 2012) for incident rate excellence and accident prevention.

With service centers in seven states and more than 60 service and roofing crews, D. C. Taylor Co. is poised to respond to customer needs quickly and efficiently. For more information on D. C. Taylor Co., visit
