Fall Prevention: Ladder Safety

Before using any ladder, inspect it. Look for the following faults:

  • Loose or missing rungs or cleats
  • Loose bolts or screws
  • Damaged edges
  • Cracked, broken, split, dented, or badly worn rungs, cleats or side rails
  • Corrosion of any kind

If you find a ladder in poor condition, tag the ladder and take it out of service. If repairs are not feasible the defective ladder must be removed from the job site.
