Workplace Safety: Using Ladders Safely Training Course

Preview Course

Ensuring you pick the right ladder based on use, performance capacity, and material is an integral part of ladder safety. Knowing when to use, or avoid, a specific type of ladder will ensure the climber doesn’t exceed weight capacity, overreach, or choose a conductive material when working with electricity or during inclement weather. While the extension ladder and wooden step ladders are common, there may be other options available to use. Check the performance rating, and, if you’re unsure which ladder is best or safest to use for a job, ask your supervisor to help.

Course Overview

Is it really that bad to stand on the top step of a ladder if you’re only going to be there a few seconds? The short answer is, yes. The long answer is covered in this training.

Ladders are one of the most common tools used across industries. From the shortest step stool to the tallest scaffold, safety must be the priority. It’s important to understand the type of ladder in use for a given application, and how to properly use it. 

This training will include:

  • Types of ladders
  • Ladder materials and ratings
  • and Ladder safety along with the 3 Points of Contact principle

Misusing or using the wrong ladder can lead to injury. Ladders come in a variety of sizes, material, and ratings. Ensure the correct ladder for the job is being used prior to climbing.

What types of ladders do you use in your place of work? What safety requirements are you already aware of? Are you in compliance and are you working safely? We will first explore the different types of ladders you might come across, and then we will take a deeper dive.This program is available with Spanish and French closed captions.
