Wear Tennis shoes on the Roof!!

Just a suggestion, but wear soft tennis shoes if you have to get on the roof! I didn't once and cracked the fiberglass!!! I had boots on with a hard tread pattern and must have put all my weight on a small area. :-(

I have not seen the Amish workers wear "Soft tennis shoes" at the Factory! Most wear "Red Wings or Other work Boots"! On the Roof also! Youroo!!

I'm a Safety Auditor for a mobile office company. Immediate termination offense for improper ladder use in the photo.
Glad he doesn't work for us....

Boat or deck shoes work real well too.
Great traction even on slippery surfaces.
My Sperry's work nicely!

Youroo, Amish make great rockers! Too bad they won't fold up to fit in the RV.

Byron,
So right! I fell off an 8ft ladder trying to get the RV cover off. Wound up in the ER. Lucky I didn't break a neck. Lost full use of my right hand. No more ripping up and down the concert grand piano. :-(
