Ladder Safety for the Competent Person

This course covers safety applications that are common to all ladders, the various types of ladders, safety for specific types of ladders, inspection and maintenance to preserve safe operation of ladders, stairways regulations, policies and procedures contained in a written program, and the responsibilities of the competent person to maintain ladder safety.

Ladders are one of the most common tools used by workers.  Although ladders are common, most users are not aware of the dangers associated with ladders.  The primary danger is falling from heights.  Ladder safety therefore concentrates on how to prevent falls by making sure the ladder is in good condition, the proper procedures for using the ladder to provide for maximum safety, and the personnel using ladders adhere to the safe usage.

This training course will certify you to the OSHA standard for ladder safety 29 CFR 1926.1053.
