Ladder safety standards in construction

Training in ladder safety can be important for workers in New York. From 1989 to 2005, over 2 million people went to the emergency room because of an accident involving a ladder. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, around two-thirds of ladder accidents are caused by employees who are not adequately trained in ladder safety.

Basic ladder safety tips from OSHA

Ladders can be effective tools when attempting to get work done on a New York job site. However, it is important that they are used safely. In some cases, it may be better to use another tool. Consider using another tool if the ladder cannot be stood on properly or if an individual will need to work at a high elevation for an extended period of time.
