Ladder Safety


Accident report studies, conducted by risk management organizations, indicate that the majority of reportable accidents are the result of veteran employees failing to pay attention or trying to shortcut the fundamental safety practices they learned when they first started their job. With this in mind, the Safety Series is designed to remind employees of the potential risks that may exist during the performance of their jobs. Rather than introducing safety training, the Safety Series provides a reminder of good safety practices, or “refresher” training, aimed at fulfilling OSHA requirements of regular safety meetings for field staff. Beyond the personal benefits of employee participation in safety training, employers can experience a significant reduction in lost work time and worker’s compensation claims due to injuries. In addition, less time is lost completing and filing accident reports, with an added benefit of reduced insurance premiums, leading to significant financial savings.

Because ladders are used in the field, the office and at home, the Ladder Safety course pertains to all employees. Ladder safety is probably one of the more casual concerns of most people, yet ladder-related injuries are among some of the more frequently reported accidents. The Ladder Safety course provides information about ladder materials and ratings, and reminds the student of safety practices such as conducting inspections and how to carry, climb and work off of a ladder.
