Ladder safety practices

Make sure to set up the ladder on a flat, level surface and secure it in place using stabilizing arms or bumpers. These devices will help to prevent the ladder from slipping or moving while you are on it. Use proper ladder techniques: Always face the ladder when climbing up or down, and use both hands to hold onto the ladder. Do not lean out too far to one side, and maintain three points of contact with the ladder at all times. Wear safety equipment: When working on ladders, it's important to wear slip-resistant shoes. Training and experience: It's important to have proper training and experience when working on ladders. It's not just about knowing how to climb and work on ladder but also recognizing potential hazards and taking appropriate measures.

Before each use, inspect ladders for any signs of damage, wear and tear, and ensure that all locking mechanisms are working properly.

Have a partner or someone around: When working on ladders, it's always a good idea to have a partner or someone nearby in case of an emergency.
