Eight ladder safety checks to train your employees on

1. They shouldn't even attempt to climb on the ladder when they feel tired or dizzy.

3. Employees must under no circumstances use ladders in high winds or storms.
4. If the ladder is made of metal, he must make sure it's not rusting.

Four other checks for ladder safety

5. If the ladder has loose or missing parts, he should put it to one side so it doesn't get used. If the ladder is wobbly and sways or leans to the side mustn't be used either.

6. The ladder he chooses must be the right size for the job.

7. The proper angle for setting up a ladder is to place its base away from the wall.

8. Wear clean slip-resistant shoes.  Shoes with leather soles aren't good for ladder use since they aren't properly slip resistant.
