Importance Points on Ladder inspection

Ladders are involved in 20% of fall injuries among workers and 81% of construction worker fall injuries. OSHA requires that employers ensure ladders are inspected on a periodic basis. However, even with periodic inspections, it is still every worker’s responsibility to be sure that the ladder they are about to use is in safe working order.

Do not climb on a damaged ladder! Always keep in mind to inspect the ladder before and after usage.
When planning a safety meeting or safety moment about ladder inspections, don’t forget to emphasize these important points.
