Every year, 300 people are killed and 165,000 are injured while using a ladder. We want to see that number come down. Do you have the right training for your employees?
With the right training your employees can have a better understanding of how to select the right step or straight ladder for the job, taking into consideration the ladder’s duty rating and the material from which it is made. The right training doesn't have to be boring either. Safety training can be both fun and educational.
It is equally important to learn how to climb and inspect ladders for service before use and how to safely carry ladders are discussed. We have videos that explain set-up considerations, how to extend straight ladders, determining the proper angle for a straight or extension ladder, climbing using three points of contact, working on ladders, and tips for making ladders stable. We even have training on how to properly store your ladder so it is in great shape the next time you or a fellow employee needs to use it.
A moment’s inattention on a ladder, or leaving tools on top of a step ladder, can cause a serious injury with long-lasting consequences. This training raises awareness of the hazards associated with ladder use and provides workers with information on how to protect themselves and others from the sometimes deadly consequences of carelessness with ladders or improper ladder use.
It is time to stop putting your employees at risk and start training on ladder safety them before they climb. Everyone wants to go home to their friends and family. Don't let one wrong step change the way you live your life. Be safe and learn how to properly use, inspect, store, and more.
