Using a Ladder• Always check a ladder before you use it; recheck it if it has been unattended.• Always face a ladder when using it.• Wear shoes with slip-resistant soles.• Always have a 3-point contact (such as, one hand and two feet).• Keep your body centered between the side rails of the ladder – so you don’t tip over the ladder.• Never work from the top or top step of a stepladder, or from any of the top 3 steps of a straight or extension ladder.

• If you must work from an extension ladder, consider using a fall protection system attached to a secure anchor point on the building, especially if pushing, pulling, or prying. (The fall protection should be designed by a qualified person.**) And keep both feet on the same rung.• Do not hold objects in your hand when moving up or down or stepping on/off a ladder to an upper level.Attach objects to your tool belt or pull them up on a line after you get to your work spot.• Do not use a ladder when it is windy.• Never move a ladder while someone is on it.• Lower the top section of an extension ladder before you move it.
