One thing we like to do on our blog is to recognize other companies that are promoting ladder safety. Grainger, one of our dealers, is doing just that. Here are a couple of tips from their site:
Before ladders can be sold, they go through extensive testing. These tests include resistance to bending and strength in different positions. The test also determine the ladder’s weight limit.
Grainger’s site also includes ladder safety tips. Choose the correct ladder for the job. Conduct a thorough inspection. Determine secure ladder placement. Climb safely. Never move the ladder when someone is on it. Never go over the ladder’s weight limit. Make sure the ground is level before using your ladder on it. Care for your ladder properly.
