Sept. 28: New Regulation Proposed for Portable Ladders


The CNESST published a notice of a draft regulation on the use of ladders and stepladders on worksites. The draft regulation clarifies the conditions governing the use, installation and manufacture of these tools and promotes the adoption of best practices, such as the three-points-of-contact rule. The CNESST will implement a plan to inform employers of the new provisions on the manufacture, verification, selection and use of ladders and stepladders when the final version of the regulation is published.
