The main goal of the Hub is to provide resources to you as safety professionals to help you with your job. In this post, we will explore some of the best outside resources we have found to help with the training. We’ve mentioned most of these at least once in various posts, but here is a list with the sites we have found the most valuable.
Our List of Resources
American Ladder Institute
This website is a great resource for anyone who works on or trains those who work on ladders. The website has various safely pages including one for basic ladder safety, one for video safety training, links to other resources and a way to order a training DVD. This website also has ladder standards and information from ANSI. Overall, it’s a great resource to check out.
OSHA has some great information on their website as well. They have all the required ladder safety guidelines. They also have instructions (with pictures) on a ladder’s proper use. OSHA also has great, downloadable handouts. Since OSHA is one of the ladder safety enforcers, they are a great place to look for ladder safety tips.
This site was put together with fall prevention tips for those who work in construction. This site is full of great tips and other resources to help train on fall prevention. There are tips for using for both ladders and scaffolds. There are also tips for working on roofs. In addition to the safety tips, there are a couple of informational pages, including a couple of images showing the number of construction falls in the US in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
The Hub is just one of many blogs that has tips for ladder safety. Other sites with great resources are OH&S Magazine, Blog 4 Safety, Safety at Work Blog and the Safety Care. There other blogs not included in this list as well. If you just search ladder safety blogs or work safety blogs, a huge list will come up.
These are the resources we find the most valuable at Little Giant. If you have time, take a few minutes to check them out and find some information to help you and your team!
