Where can I learn more about ladder safety and fall protection?

You can learn about ladder safety and fall protection at many different places. Pages on the internet and brochures that come with your equipment will all encourage caution when using ladders, scaffolding in MA, or any fall protection equipment. Safety and precaution are always supported for legal reasons, but may sometimes be different depending on the point of purchase. No matter the content, one good habit to practice is redundancy. Each time you use any ladders or fall protection, double or triple check that it gets used correctly.

Never use ladders or fall protection unless you fully understand their proper use and have read the instructions. Most of the time, common sense will get the job done. Remember that it only takes one careless moment to become injured.

What if my ladder breaks?

If your ladder breaks, contact the ladder company you bought it from immediately. You should never try “do-it-yourself” repair with any ladder or fall protection equipment. Many ladder companies will offer a durability warranty. In the worst case scenario, purchasing a new ladder might be your best option.
