Consider the list of dangerous construction equipment in the infographic below. There are a number of issues listed, but we’d like you to focus on ladders.
Does it surprise you that ladders are classified as dangerous equipment?
Did you know that 8 out of 10 fall injuries seen in an emergency room are ladder related? That means fall protection specifically geared toward ladder safety should be a priority. At TC Safety Supply, we have OSHA-compliant ladder guards that can help reduce the likelihood of falls due to unguarded ladder access points on rooftops and other leading edges.
