According to a recent study, men over the age of 55 are more likely to die as a result of a ladder-related accident than other gender and age groups.

Why is that the case? Here are a couple of potential reasons:

Worn Out Ladders

Old, worn out ladders or non-sturdy ladders often cause ladder accidents. It is time to retire these ladders before someonege gets hurt. Ladders have come a long way in the last 40 years and there is no reason to keep using a ladder that has reached its time for retirement.

Unsafe Use

Climbing on the top cap, leaning on the ladder, using the ladder on uneven ground are all unsafe ways to use your t ladder. Often, when people get injured while using a ladder, they ere using it unsafely.

Climb safely so you can return home safely to your family.
