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.
