Ladders are the kind of tools that many people assume they know how to use. They may think they know how to climb the ladder safely, when in fact they may not. To learn more about ladder safety, checkout our infographic here: https://www.creativesafetysupply.com/infographics/ladder-safety

Safe, efficient use of ladders is not really a complicated or difficult task but it does require that the users practice safe and proper ladder safety habits. In other words there are right and wrong ways to approach the ladder as a tool.

There are key considerations that need to be taken into account which involve the height of the ladder, or of the job you need to do while on that ladder, placement of hands and feet, stability of the ladder itself as well as a myriad of other issues.

This short but informative slideshare is meant to help you begin that journey of understanding the inherent positive but also dangerous elements of a ladder. Knowing which safety elements are critical to the success of your job and which need to be avoided to curtail or eliminate danger or accidents is critical information you need to make your own BEFORE starting out.

If you have any questions regarding the types of ladders available and which ones might best support you in your project, do not hesitate to call our trained staff for a verbal checklist at 1-8 66-7 77-1360.
