A Practical Approach to Ladder Safety (TrainingVideoNow)

While ladder manufacturers strive to produce the safest ladders possible, a well-made ladder is not enough. Our safety while climbing or working on a ladder depends on following safe work practices: choose the correct ladder for the job; inspect the ladder before use; set up the ladder properly; and, use the ladder in a safe and proper manner. This new program discusses the basic precautions that will keep employees safe when using ladders. Viewers will also see the consequences of failing to follow these safe work practices.
