Working In A Group Is Risk-Free.

It’s much better to remove snow from your roof with others than it is to do it alone. It’s not only faster, but it’s also a lot safer. For example, if you need to climb to the roof, your partner can hold the ladder in place or rush to your aid if there is an emergency.

Before You Begin, Stretch.

Before clearing snow, stretch as you would before any other physical activity. It’s also a good idea to go for a short walk or do a quick warm-up to get your blood pumping and heart rate up gradually. You’ll be better prepared for physical activity this way, and your back and muscles will thank you later.
