Ladder Safety Fact Sheet

To prevent injury when climbing, follow these procedures:

  • 1.

    Position the ladder at a safe angle to prevent slipping. The hori- zontal distance from the base of the ladder to the structure should be one-quarter the length of the ladder to its resting position.

  • 2.

    Make sure the base of the ladder has firm support and the ground or floor is level. Be very careful when placing a ladder on wet, icy, or otherwise slippery surfaces. Special blocking may be needed to prevent slipping in these cases.

  • 3.

    Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for proper use.

  • 4.

    Check the condition of the ladder before using it. Joints must be tight to prevent wobbling or leaning.
