How far from the base of a structure should an extension ladder be placed? How high up the rungs can a worker safely climb? Those questions and many more are answered by the new ladder safety training offered by Mastery.com.“Using Ladders Safely,” produced by CLMI, helps workers understand what type of ladder to use for which jobs, what American National Standards Institute ladder ratings mean, and how to prepare worksites for safe ladder use.
Viewers learn about stepladders, extension ladders and articulated multi-purpose ladders, including how to inspect each type of ladder for damage and safety hazards. The importance of maintaining three points of contact while climbing or descending a ladder is explained and the proper hand-hand, foot-foot method of climbing is demonstrated. Tips for setting up the ladder, positioning oneself on the ladder, maintaining balance and stability, and transporting tools and equipment up a ladder are covered. Positioning ladders on soft or uneven surfaces is explained, and viewers learn when to seek an alternative method of elevation when ladder use cannot be made safe.
This high-definition video is applicable to homeowners as well as those in building trades or custodial/maintenance positions. Falls from elevations are among the most frequent causes of worker and homeowner injuries, and can be the most devastating.“Using Ladders Safely” helps everyone who climbs a ladder to perform a simple or complex task do so with greater awareness of the risks involved and knowledge of how to lessen the risk of injury.
