DAILY RESPONSIBILITES.
1. Report to work at the agreed time. The Project Manager should be first at the job site to get mentally prepared as to how to start the day in minimum start-up time.
2. Insure that Inventory Control Form reports daily material taken from inventory and material delivered to the job site from outside vendors, submit packing slips to Production.
3. Make sure the truck is not overloaded and equipment is properly stored on the truck for transit without damage. Ladders should not overhang the rear of the truck more than 4′ without a red flag.
4. Make sure Apprentice or Mechanic has installed the job sign.
5. At the start of the job, introduce yourself as the Project Manager to the customer. Assure them that if they have any questions, they may ask you, and tell the customer that you are responsible for their final approval of the completed work.
6. Analyze the Job:
   a) Taking into consideration proximity to staging areas, possible theft, customer access to house and garage, you must determine the best place to unload and store materials.
   b) Determine your best starting point considering Estimator’s diagram, a current leak which must be attended to immediately, schedule where practical in sun during the winter, in shade during the summer. In a tear off, how much can be opened and closed each day?
   c) Instruct Mechanic and Apprentice where to unload and where to set up. Make sure equipment is set up safely. Have fire extinguisher placed on roof if torches are to be used. Do not allow a Mechanic or Apprentice to operate a Fusing Torch without training and supervision.
   d) Plan job to be performed in the least amount of time with the most customer satisfaction.
   e) Plan the job to complete at the end of day without hanging over a couple of hours the next day. Usually the couple hours end up taking half the next day, negatively affecting the budget and “Merit Bonus.”
   f) Inspect all deliveries to be in the conformance with Purchase Orders and Bills of Lading. Notify Production Manager of any discrepancies.
   g) Pre-Inspect, confirm all appropriate materials are on site just in case there has been an oversight. Make sure you understand the specifications and salesman’s paperwork. Determine if the Salesman correctly measured and specified by measuring the entire job before starting. Determine if there is a shortage on the front end, rather than unexpectedly running out of material or equipment.
   h) Is there rotted decking the Estimator did not uncover? Does the customer need new gutters or additional ventilation, which are not part of the specifications? If there’s a problem report it to the Production Manager.
7. Load materials onto the roof for ONE day’s production. Excess material must be unloaded or positively secured each night to prevent blow-offs.
8. Make sure the Apprentice or Mechanic is keeping the property neat. A Project Manager should not be “Too Big” ‘to help in the cleanup, but his time should be invested in leadership, planning and production.
9. End of Day: Make sure equipment is disassembled and locked in a secure place. All trash picked up. Anticipate material and equipment needs two days in advance. Write down any problems to be discussed with the Production Manager. Maintain daily inventory of materials and equipment.
10. Make absolutely sure the job is 100% watertight every night. Project Manager is entirely responsible for all interior water or file damage due to roof replacement procedures.
