National Ladder Safety Month


March 2017

As a construction based company, safety is one of our top priorities and is why we recognize specific months that touch on safety-related topics. For example, March is National Ladder Safety Month. Did you know that 90,000 people are taken to the Emergency Department each year due to ladder-related accidents? This number is quite staggering and is why Enerfab places such high important on ladder safety, especially because accidents involving ladders can not only occur at work but at home as well.

The main causes of ladder accidents actually revolve around selecting the wrong type of ladder to complete a project. The size and type of ladder can greatly impact a project. Calculating the correct height – 3 feet beyond the building height – of a ladder alone can decrease the amount of injuries caused. Damaged ladders are another key issue involving ladders. If a ladder looks too old, it probably is and splinters could potentially result in a fall. Ladders should also be placed correctly against a surface using a 3:1 ratio. Other tips to remember include wearing proper footwear, placing ladders on even ground and maintaining three points of contact while using a ladder.

Many of these tips might seem like common sense, but it’s important to view this as a sort of checklist because accidents can happen even when you think you’re being safe. At Enerfab, we believe in ladder safety training because the most important thing to leave our shop each day is our employees.
