The ladder safety program is designed to provide our employees with appropriate protection from injury when working on portable ladders at heights thereby preventing fall related injury.

Portable ladders will be provided to affected employees with the expectation that the employee will maintain the equipment in an appropriate manner and report immediately to their supervisor as to any damage or excessive wear.

The type of ladder to be used will be dependent on the specific circumstances associated with the job to be performed at each job site. Site conditions will have a direct impact on ladder use in terms of available setup area.

Ladder safety begins with the selection of the proper ladder for the job and includes inspection, setup, proper climbing and standing, proper use, care, and storage. In addition to the general safety rules for all ladders, there are special rules for using stepladders and for single and extension ladders.
