Ladder safety: Do your people know the steps?

Ladder safety: Do your people know the steps?

Nothing could be simpler than using a ladder: You just set it up and get to work, right?

Wrong. Many workers are injured on ladders each year because they underestimate or don't understand the risks.
Test your people's knowledge by having them answer True or False to the following:
1 An unsecured ladder should extend three feet past its highest support point.
2 When carrying heavy or unwieldy objects up a ladder, you should make sure they're held with the non-dominant hand.
3 Having a worker stand at the bottom of a ladder to warn people not to bump into it is the best way to prevent an accidents in high-traffic areas.
