What is Ladder Safety?
The ALI's theme for this week is "What is Ladder Safety?" so we wanted to talk about it on the blog today. The simple explanation of ladder safety is using a ladder in a way that will not cause an accident or injury. Here are a few tips for being safe on your ladder: Set the ladder on firm, level ground
- Firm and level ground will prevent the ladder from tipping. If the ladder is unlevel, use a ladder leveler to help level it. You can use a ladder with integrated levelers, like the Ratchet™ Levelers for extra stability. If the ground is slick, wet or too soft, wait until the conditions become better.
