Gotta love OSHA. The Mastec installer is here to install my new HR20 and Slimline dish and has advised me that OSHA regulations won't allow him to get up on a roof that has more than a 4/12 pitch. He said mine is about a 6/12 and if he were to fall off of it workman's comp wouldn't cover him and he's only been with them for 2 months so he doesn't have insurance. We're now waiting on his super to come out and see if he can clear him to get up there. He's a young guy with a family so I can see his dilema but I've been on that roof and it's not that bad. Oh, well. The only place a pole mount will work is in the front yard and I don't really care for that option. Looks like I may be mounting this thing myself tomorrow. If so, you can bet I'm hitting D* up for a credit.
