5 Ways to Reduce Workers’ Compensation Costs 

Workers’ Compensation Costs

Worker safety is a top priority for any roofing company. Ensuring a safe working environment not only protects employees but also minimizes the financial burden associated with workers’ compensation claims. Using systems that protect your workers long-term sets your business up for growth and scalability, which are more important now than ever. 

EagleView, as a leader in aerial imagery and data analytics, provides innovative technology that can significantly reduce workers’ compensation costs in the roofing industry. In this article, we will explore five ways EagleView’s technology can help companies achieve safer operations and mitigate potential risks. 

1. Eliminating the Need for Ladders 

The traditional approach of manually measuring roofs can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. Roofers often find themselves in uncomfortable positions while balancing on slopes and edges, increasing the chances of accidents. EagleView’s technology simplifies the data collection process, ensuring that workers can access accurate measurements without compromising their safety. 

EagleView utilizes state-of-the-art aerial imagery captured from planes equipped with specialized cameras. These high-resolution images offer a bird’s-eye view of the entire roof, allowing for precise measurements without setting foot on the property. The technology also generates comprehensive reports of the roof, providing detailed insights into its dimensions and features. 

By relying on EagleView’s roof reports, roofing professionals no longer need to use ladders or climb on roofs to measure dimensions manually. This eliminates the risk of falls and potential accidents associated with working at heights during the measurement process, leading to a safer work environment. 

2. Usage of Drones for Roof Inspections 

In addition to aerial imagery from planes, EagleView also utilizes drones for roof inspections. Drones can access tight or hard-to-reach spaces, reducing the need for workers to physically access hazardous areas. This not only improves the accuracy of data collection but also lowers the risk of accidents associated with manual inspections. 

3. Enhanced Precision and Accuracy 

EagleView’s roof reports utilize high-resolution aerial imagery to ensure highly accurate measurements. The reports show slopes, angles, ridges, and valleys, resulting in precise data that optimizes material estimates, but also gives roofers an idea of what to expect before stepping foot on the roof. Having data like the slope of a roof can ensure roofers know what kind of safety measures to take before installing a new roof. 

4. Early Detection of Roofing Issues 

Timely identification of roofing issues can prevent minor problems from escalating into major accidents. EagleView’s advanced analytics can detect signs of wear and tear, damage, or potential hazards from the safety of the ground. Early detection allows roofing companies to address issues proactively. Additionally, with detailed information on hand, roofing companies can devise better safety strategies, minimizing the risk of accidents and reducing workers’ compensation costs associated with severe injuries. 

5. Improved Planning and Resource Allocation 

EagleView’s roof reports, like BidPerfect™, provide comprehensive data that streamlines project planning and resource allocation. Roofing companies can make informed decisions based on accurate roof measurements and condition assessments, leading to efficient resource allocation and optimal workforce deployment. This ensures that employees are not overburdened with excessive workloads, reducing the risk of injuries caused by exhaustion and stress-related accidents. 


EagleView’s technology presents roofing companies with a powerful suite of tools to enhance safety, productivity, and cost-efficiency. By providing accurate roof measurements through roof reports, we eliminate the need for workers to climb onto roofs, significantly reducing the risk of falls and related injuries. Through advanced aerial imagery and proactive risk mitigation, roofing companies can create a safer working environment for their employees, resulting in fewer workers’ compensation claims and a more sustainable business in the long run. Embrace EagleView’s technology today and pave the way for a safer and more successful future in the roofing industry.
