Supervisors of employees who routinely use ladders shall also be provided ladder safety training.
Required Training Elements:
- Importance of using ladders safely
- Ladder Selection
- Maintenance, inspection, and removal of damaged ladders from service
- Erecting ladders
- Climbing and working on ladders
- Factors contributing to falls
- Prohibited uses
OccuSafe Network’s Online ladder safety training for supervisors provides employer’s supervisors training on the required training elements and empowers the supervisors with the information needed to effectively train and oversee their workers.
It is a good idea to keep a record of all safety and health training. Documentation can also supply an answer to one of the first questions an incident investigator will ask: “Did the employee receive adequate training to do the job?”
