  • Stabilize the ladder. When in the extended position, the top of the ladder should be placed firmly against the space you are working on. When working on a roof, be sure the ladder extends at least 3í past the roofline. Place the bottom on a sturdy, even surface and stand on the first rung to check stability before ascending the ladder.

  • Keep your balance. While on the ladder, lean against it and keep your hips between the rails. Always hold onto the ladder with at least one hand.

  • Inspect the ladder. Before each use inspect the ladder for broken locks or rungs. Check to see if it is bent, damaged or broken.

  • Keep the ladder slip free. Ladders are used for many different projects, so make sure it doesnít have any oil, paint, grease or other hazards on the rungs and feet. And always keep your ladder dry and clean.

  • Lock it in place! To keep the ladder stable and to prevent it from folding, make sure any hinges or joints are securely locked before you step on.

  • Respect gravity. Falling hurts so position your belt buckle between the side rails at all times. Make certain the area at the top and bottom of the ladder are clear.

  • Face your ladder. To help prevent a falling accident, face the ladder when both ascending and descending.

  • Wear rubber soles.When doing electrical work or when working outside, wear shoes with rubber soles to keep you grounded. Rubber soles can help keep a better grip on the ladder.

  • Stay away from the top two rungs. Because you can become very unstable when standing on the top two rungs, staying below the third rung when possible to help you keep your balance.

  • Use your ladder properly. Avoid applying more weight than recommended, deviating from recommended use and make sure itís long enough so you never tie two separate ladders together.

  • Read all warning labels and instructions before use.
