Without properly inspecting your ladders and following ladder rules, you could be at risk of serious injuries.
Construction sites are home to some of the world’s most dangerous professions – which is why year after year, construction-related injuries land at the top of OSHA’s citation list. While there are a wide range of injuries that can occur on a job site, an alarming number of them involve ladders. These useful tools can become a serious work hazard if not used and maintained properly. Something as simple as completing an inspection prior to stepping onto a ladder, or placing a lockout on a defective ladder, could potentially save a life.
Follow OSHA’s rules for using ladders in the construction, alteration, repair, painting, decorating and demolition of work sites to help ensure your workers go home safely.
Keep workers safe and remind them that a competent person must visually inspect stepladders for visible defects on a periodic basis and after any occurrence that could affect their safe use.
To determine the correct ladder, consider your weight plus the weight of your load. Remember not to exceed the load rating and always consult with OSHA for duty ratings and proper guidelines.
