Extension Ladder Safety Checklist

BENEFITS

Many workers use extension ladders on the job. But improper use of this common equipment can put workers at risk. So workers should be trained on the proper use of ladders in the workplace and tested to ensure they understood that training.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL

Adapt this extension ladder safety checklist for the ladder requirements in your jurisdiction’s OHS laws, your OHS program and your ladder safety training. Workers and supervisors can use it to ensure that workers are properly setting up, repositioning and using extension ladders.
