Ladders Climbing Toolbox Talks

As per the OSHA research that there are 24,882 injuries and more than 50 fatalities per year due to falls on stairways and ladders used in the construction sector.  

A. Introduction

  1. Review any accidents/incident or “Near Accidents” from the previous week.
  2. Explain the hazards & Risks of the site work as they relate to the project.  
  3. Narrate or show the SSOW & SAFE way of doing the job.
  4. Conduct the TOOLBOX SAFETY TALK (TBT).

B. When Using Ladders, be Mindful and Follow These Basic Safety Rules:

  1. Make sure rungs and steps are clear of grease, oil, dirt, snow, or ice before climbing.
  2. Clean muddy or slippery boot soles before climbing a ladder.
  3. When climbing up or down the ladders, always face a ladder.

C. Follow the Three-Point Rule: 

  1. Put/Keep at least both feet and one hand or both hands and one foot on the ladder at all times while climbing the ladder.
  2. Keep your body centred between the side rails of the ladder, so you don’t tip over the ladder.   
  3. An authentic and recommended rule is to always keep your belt buckle inside the rails of a ladder.

  5. Never stand on the top two steps of a stepladder and the top four rungs on other Ladders.
  6. Always inspect and observe the ladder before climbing to make sure it is in good shape.
