The Safe2Torch campaign, launched in 2017 by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC), has altered the way we approach roofing specifications. This initiative, developed by the market itself, aims to improve safety on site for everyone involved and has been embraced by the industry.
Safe2Torch is about minimising fire risk and promoting best practice when using gas torches to install torch-on membranes or drying out roof spaces. Consisting of a guidelines booklet and checklist, the campaign aims to promote the safe use of torches at any stage of a project.
Safe2Torch is making safe specifications and safe working practices second nature. Anyone involved in roofing should be pledging their support to the campaign and helping promote it – within the industry and outside it.
