There telling you to use some plywood squares, like maybe a 2 foot x 4 foot to use to step on and spread your weight around. Think of the way a snowshoe works.
Roof supports on lightweight rigs probably aren't as heavy, or as close togather as other, heavier rigs and not made to support concentrated weight.
They don't want you walking up there and end up putting your foot through the roof.
