A roof structure covers the uppermost part of a building or shelter and helps provide protection from the elements. The characteristics of a roof are dependent upon the purpose of the structure that it covers.
Typically, modern roofs are mostly surrounded with pairs of common struts or pre-produced wooden trusses attached together with truss connector plates. Pre-manufactured roof trusses come in a variety of types and styles and are specifically designed for each individual building.
The nature of the work involved in working with roof frames and the methods of installation provide a large number of risks to the workers during the construction or erection process.
