If you’ve got ladders, you need to inspect them, it’s as simple as that.
Unsafe ladders cause injuries and potentially fatalities as well.
Develop a step-by-step inspection procedure for each and every time you use the ladder.
Make sure your employees have the procedure sheet and that they checkoff each item and sign the document.
Here’s a great checklist that you can download from CPWR, the Center ofr Construction Research and Training.
