T&K Roofing & Sheet Metal Safety Program

Safety Program

At T&K Roofing and Sheet Metal Company everything starts with safety.

Safety for T&K employees, safety for T&K Customers, and safety for everyone around our projects.

At T&K Roofing and Sheet Metal, safety is not a program, it is a culture that embodies a deep commitment to the well being of everyone.
At T&K we believe there is no roofing and sheet metal company in the entire region that exceeds this dedication and commitment.

Each new employee must go through orientation and safety training before they are scheduled to start in the field on projects. The new employee orientation and safety training consists of safety information and a series of NRCA produced video’s on general industry safety guidelines.
