Safer Shovelling

Course information

Due to ignorance and carelessness, shoveling snow on roofs cause damages worth several millions each year.
It is the property owner who is responsible for removing snow and ice, so that persons or property can not be damaged. Snow can fall down, but also roof tiles and mortar and other devices mounted on the building.
