A man working and holding a ladder and slip sign

March is National Ladder Safety Month. Every year, over 100 people die in ladder-related accidents, while thousands more suffer preventable life-threatening injuries. Ladder-related injuries are a common slip and fall accident most people do not see themselves being a victim of.

Below are some tips to help you avoid experiencing a fall in the future.

Tips while using a ladder:

  • Select the correct ladder for the job.
  • Inspect the ladder before you use it.
  • Always keep three limbs on the ladder.
  • Use a ladder on stable surfaces only.

Ladder safety is important because it:

  • Decreases the number of injuries per year.
  • Increases the ladder safety certificates issued.
  • Lowers the number of ladder safety citations written by OSHA.
  • Raises the number of ladder trainings.

We hope March brings awareness to ladder safety. However, accidents still happen, even if you are prepared and careful. If you or a loved one is injured in any way due to a slip and fall accident, the personal injury attorneys at Hupy and Abraham are here to help. We have decades of experience helping victims of injuries.
