Ladder Safety Month - Week 4

The most important part of ladder safety education is giving our ladder users the tools they need on the jobsite to make certain they can climb safely if the task requires that they climb at all. There is a free ladder safety application for mobile phones that will put many ladder safety practices in the hands of your employees in the place they need them most; On The Job.

This week, take time to discuss the use of this application, communicate with your ladder users on how to use this tool and review your program and practices surrounding site-specific ladder safety.  Have each ladder user in your company download the app to their mobile phone and practice using the safety components it provides such as ladder selection, ladder inspection, ladder set up and proper use reminders.
