Why is Ladder Safety training important?

Falls are responsible for nearly half of fatalities in the residential construction industry.  Of these, over a third of them were falls from ladders and scaffolds.  Hundreds of people die every year because the proper safety procedures were either not in place or not followed correctly.

Also, of the top ten most frequent violations of OSHA standards, nine of them involve inadequate fall protection.

This is a very serious issue with grave repercussions, and it is very important that you know what you’re doing when it comes to protecting yourself against this kind of accident.
