Webinar: Walking and Working Surfaces: Ladders
Jun 14 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Many operations use ladders to complete daily tasks – including accessing elevated areas for repairs, installing products, or retrieving stock. Using a ladder may seem simple, but when used without proper training, it can actually be dangerous and lead to workplace injuries. According to OSHA, about 20% of workplace fatalities can be attributed to improper ladder use. Knowing how to correctly use a ladder and what safety regulations you should be following is essential to keeping your employees safe.In this session, Gary Jones discusses OSHA requirements for ladders, including use and training requirements. This webinar will also cover compliance resources, including checklists, available to you.
