I would like to know where and who is doing the painting on the roofs in the pictures shown. No safety belts or lines ? FlipFlops ? No offense but a better representation of the company doing the work has a better impact from your publication .

Thank you for your comment, Farrel. While we and the author were also concerned about the lack of fall protection and PPE shown in the project, the author felt the photos depicted the needs of the roof very well and in a way that could not be matched by photos from domestic projects. The photos, as mentioned in a caption, depict work being done in the Philippines, where safety requirements are not as strict as in the U.S.
