The humble ladder. It’s been helping people reach things from high places for 10,000 years, and providing slapstick comedians with potential joke material for a good while, too! But there’s more to a ladder than just the steps, and using one safely is no laughing matter.

Every year, thousands of people are injured falling from ladders at work. Sometimes these injuries can be very serious, or even fatal. So, to help reduce the risk, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) put in place rules and regulations about the safe use of ladders, which all employers in the US must comply with.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Identify when, and which types of, ladders must be provided to keep employees safe
• Describe how to set up and inspect ladders correctly to ensure they’re suitable
• Create best practices for the safe use and maintenance of ladders in your workplace

Why take this course?

As a leader, manager, or Health and Safety manager, you have a duty to provide the correct equipment to protect employees from harm. This course will show you how to decide when ladders are needed, and which ladders are appropriate. It’ll also look at best-practice advice for setting up, inspecting, using, and maintaining ladders correctly.
