Ladder Safety 101

Course Introduction

We have always taught ladder safety as part of our fall protection class but since so many people asked for ladder training separately here it is.  This hands-on course covers the proper selection and use of ladders including step ladders, extension ladders, multipurpose ladders, and even fixed ladders.

Course Agenda

This interactive session is designed to give the students real life practical instruction on ladder use.

Topics covered during this class are:

 Types of ladders

 Handling, storage and transportation of ladders

 Pre-use inspections

 Set up and use of step Ladders

 Set up and use of straight ladders and extension ladders

 Set up and use of articulating or multipurpose ladders

 Fixed ladder safety and fall protection methods
