Safe Ladder Set-up and Use

  • Select the right ladder for the job. Inspect the ladder before use; look for broken rungs and cracks.
  • Use a ladder best suited for the landscape, like those with non-slip feet or spikes.
  • Setup ladders away from doors. If necessary, block off the door and post warning signs.
