Ladder-Guard is your tool for home and workplace ladder safety. Our product will help your business and your employees reduce the risks associated with the use of ladders.
Individuals using ladders are often not mindful of potential hazards associated with ladder use and may take dangerous risks in the interest of saving time. Standing on the top cap or top step of a ladder, rather than choosing a ladder for a specific job, too often results in injury and sometimes death.
Ladder injuries are preventable, especially with the help of Ladder-Guard, which prevents workers from using the top step of a ladder. This is not only a great safety measure but also the law.
OSHA regulation 1926.1053(b)(13) states, “The top or top step of a stepladder shall not be used as a step.” Additionally, ladder-related violations are in OSHA’s top 10 list for most common OSHA transgressions. Because of the frequency of ladder injuries and violations, OSHA supports ladder safety month in March of every year.
