Course overview

The humble ladder. It’s been helping people reach things from high places for 10,000 years! But there’s more to a ladder than just the steps, and using one safely is no laughing matter.

Every year, thousands of people are injured falling from ladders at work. Sometimes these injuries can be very serious, or even fatal. So, to help reduce the risk, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) put in place rules and regulations about the safe use of ladders, which all employers in the US must comply with.
