March safety topic: Ladder Safety
March is National Ladder Safety Month, and with more than 3,000 American workers injured each day due to slips, trips and falls*, the following are important tips to remember:
- Inspect ladders prior to use; make sure the steps are clean and check for damage. Damaged ladders should be taken out of service.
- Do not overreach – set the ladder close enough to your work. Pick the appropriate sized ladder for the task.
- Maintain three points of contact when climbing up or down a ladder.
- Be sure your ladder is on firm, level ground. Never put a ladder on objects like boxes.
