Ladder Safety

Always inspect your ladder before use. Never climb on a damaged ladder, or one that is missing parts.

Do not leave your ladder set up and unattended if children are present.

Always face the ladder rungs when climbing up or down. Keep your body centered between the side rails.

Use both hands when climbing.

Do not overreach. Do not "walk" the ladder when standing on it.

Do not stand, climb, or sit on the top or pail shelf of the ladder.
