Every once in a while, we will receive calls after these customers have left the store about proper ladder use, and our most common form of advice is use common sense!
Though it might seem silly, we truly believe in this statement! Many ladder related injuries are caused by going against most “common sense” practices of safe ladder use, and can vary in their severity. There are plenty of regulations put into place by OSHA and other safety organizations which keep construction crews safe, but when it comes to do-it-yourself work, not everyone follows those exact guidelines.
– Read the instructions for your specific ladder
– Always check the ladder being using
– Place ladders on a hard, flat, unmovable surfaces
– Do not attempt to move the ladder while in use
– Never attach two ladders together for extra length
