How to Choose the Right Ladder for the Right Job

Know the Difference. Some workers might not realize the differences from one ladder to the next. Having the right ladder for the job is the safest way to complete any task. Using the wrong ladder is extremely dangerous as it often leads to ladder misuse or abuse and can result in serious injury or even death. To get an idea of some of the different ways that ladders are used, just think about all of the tasks you and the other professionals do. Most of them require the use of ladders of different styles, sizes, duty ratings, and materials.
Check out Werner’s website to find the right ladder for the right job.  You can also find them on Facebook.
Smart ladder users are safe climbers. Ladders are such common everyday tools that many workers take them for granted. As you read the safety guidelines, you may say: “I know that, that’s just plain common sense.” You can avoid a ladder injury if you think before you act and use ladders correctly. Your work will be easier and more productive too. Ladder related injuries are preventable, if you think before you climb.
Stop into your local Hardware Hank and ask an expert to take a look at your perfect ladder.
