- Do not use the top step/rung of a ladder as a step/rung unless it was designed for that purpose
- Ladders must be free of any slippery material on the rungs, steps or feet
- Properly set and use the ladder according to safety instructions and warnings
- Wear shoes with non-slip soles
Making smart decisions while using any type of ladder is a must. Each ladder has directions specific to that ladder type, so be sure to know what capabilities are offered. Remember, ladder injuries are easily preventable.
