Facing Your Work On A Stepladder
The DangerTwisting and Straddling on a Stepladder
To get closer to their work, most operators turn the stepladder sideways to get close to their work surface. Although this gets you closer, it also makes you twist or straddle the ladder unsafely. This practice results in operators pushing the ladder away from the work surface, which will result in a serious fall.
The Little Giant Select Step® is one of several Little Giant safety products that allows the operator to use the ladder in the 90-degree position, which allows the operator to face the work surface with his feet on a solid rung and to apply force from a much more stable foundation.
