This month, as part of Ladder Safety Month, we are sharing a few ladder safety tips. This week, the American Ladder Institute is focusing on ladder safety at work. Ladders are necessary for a variety of industries, not just construction and industrial work. Retail workers use ladders. Military personnel use ladders. Framing, HVAC, farming, mechanic, are all industries that require ladders.

For those who work in a job where you use a ladder, here are a couple of safety tips.

-Choose the Right Ladder

-Start with a Firm Foundation

-Pay attention while you climb

-Pay attention to your environment

If you use ladders regularly, make sure you have a supervisor or safety officer train you on safe use.
