Ladders are used every day in workplaces. In Newfoundland and Labrador, on average, one worker per week is injured due to a fall from a ladder. The most common causes of ladder-related injuries are: using the incorrect ladder for the job, using an unsafe or damaged ladder, placing the ladder on poor support and using the ladder in an unsafe manner. To stay safe, you need to select the right ladder for the job, use it safely, inspect it and maintain it.
