Stepping Up

A ladder is one of the most widely used equipment. Regardless of whether one is replacing a light bulb at home, giving the office a fresh coat of paint or working in an industrial setting like a warehouse or a retail store, a ladder always comes in handy.

Safety and Ladders

Most of the danger associated with the use of ladders comes not from the ladders themselves, but from how workers use them.

Too Tall to Fall

Ladders could well be one of mankind’s oldest inventions. While ladders are indispensable in many forms of structures from prehistoric to modern times, they can also prove hazardous if not properly used and maintained.

Ladder Safety in Construction

There are many factors to consider for the safe use of ladders on construction projects. Ontario’s Ministry of Labour offers health and safety considerations and best practices for using ladders on construction projects.

WorkSafeBC releases new ladder-safety videos
