A ladder is a simple tool but a person using a ladder can be injured in an accident when using a ladder. The number of ladder-related accidents could be significantly reduced if workers conscientiously followed the basics of ladder safety. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OHSA) has established recommendations, requirements, and employee training for the proper use of ladders with the goal to reduce the common causes of falls from ladders.
