Ladder Safety Training



Course Description

This course is designed to address all aspects of safely using ladders in the workplace. Falls represent the largest single cause of accidental death in the workplace. About 40% of these falls result in falling from one level to another, many from ladders. Many of these falls are very serious but more importantly, could have been prevented had proper safety procedures been followed.

This course is typically covered over one day in classroom training with instruction taking approximately 3 – 4 hours. This includes testing, both written and practical.
