Ladder Safety Training (1/2 day)
A third of all reported fall from height incidents involve ladders and stepladders and on average, this accounts for 14 deaths and 1200 major injuries to workers each year. Many of these injuries are caused by incorrect use or inappropriate selection of the equipment.
