A moment’s inattention when working on a ladder can cause a severe injury or death. More than 165,000 people a year are injured and 300 are killed due to ladder-related accidents. This video training covers the basics of ladder selection, inspection, transportation, set-up and use. It discusses step ladders and extension ladders. Guidelines for securing ladders, inspecting the area around ladders for hazards, choosing the right ladder for the job, ascending and descending ladders and carrying tools are discussed. The video concludes with general safety tips for securing and stabilizing ladders, and a real-life story of how a fall from a ladder changed someone’s life.

This training is presented in bite-sized segments, each followed by a short quiz to test the viewer’s understanding. Assign this ladder safety course to anyone who works on ladders to help them be aware of the hazards involved in working on ladders.
