Under One Roof

Canadian Roofing Reference Manual

2.3 Hoist Operations

Every roofing crew no matter what size is required to move supplies and equipment up to the roof and back down again.

Several systems are available to do this hoisting and the system used by the individual roofing crew will depend on the type and amount of material and equipment to be moved and the specifics of the building (i.e. distance from the roof to the ground).
