They are built lighter than your regular roof. Even though it would likely hold your weight if you were evenly on both feet and walking, I wouldn't trust it to kneel down or put your whole weight on one foot or knee. I would say you are on the right track to put a board across it before you put your weight on it. Better safe than sorry.
