Week 1 of Ladder Safety Month focuses on ladder training and awareness. Employers need to provide proper training to all individuals who will be using ladders:

  • Educate users on ladder safety guidelines, best practices, and potential hazards.
  • Instruct users to read and follow all the safety information labels on the ladder.
  • Promote a culture of safety awareness where workers actively identify and report ladder safety concerns.

Avoid factors that contribute to falls from ladders: haste or sudden movement, overreaching, lack of attention, improper climbing posture such as standing too high or straddling the ladder and carrying objects and not maintaining three points of contact.

  • Preplan - Inspect and know the hazards within your work environment.
  • Choose the correct ladder for the job – a self-supporting stepladder or a non-self-supporting leaning, single or extension ladder.
