Today, we’ve put together a list of things not to do with your ladder. Here’s what we’ve come up with:
-Never leave a ladder unattended. When not in use, put your ladder away or lay it on the ground.
-Never set up your ladder in front of a door that is not locked or otherwise blocked.
-Never use your ladder on an uneven surface
-Never make up a job for your ladder; Use your ladder for the job it was intended
-Never “lash” ladders together to make the ladder taller
-Never use your ladder in bad weather
-Don’t skip any rungs when climbing up or down the ladder
-Don’t exceed the weight rating with your weight and the weight of your tools
-Never climb a stepladder when it’s leaning against a wall
-Don’t throw or drop the ladder
This list is large, but it’s important to remember what not to do while working on your ladder.
