In the mechanical industry more than 50% of falls from elevation are falls from ladders. Most of the time it’s because our workers are reaching out too far, or carrying tools or materials in their hands while climbing. However, there are many other reasons for falls from ladders and this video can help you train your workers to recognize and avoid all of them. MCAA’s Ladder Safety Training Video will show your fitters, plumbers, and service technicians how to properly inspect, transport, set up and use ladders safely.
The video emphasizes:
- Common reasons for falls
- The safe use of ladders, including stepladders and portable straight ladders
- How new ladder technology has substantially improved ladder safety
Accompanying materials are also available to assist you in highlighting key training points, documenting worker training and confirming that workers understand the training concepts:
