THE IMPORTANCE OF A LADDER SAFETY PROGRAM
Ladder-safety instruction is essential to the safe and smooth operation of any workplace. Since most ladder accidents are the result of careless or improper ladder usage, a well-designed and well taught ladder safety program is well worth the effort. It can not only prevent human suffering, it can also provide economic benefits by reducing lost man-hours, minimizing insurance costs, and cutting down on worker’s compensation claims. EH&S provides ladder training to faculty and staff as needed. Contact us for more information.
