Ladder Safety Training 2021

March is Ladder Safety Month, and to celebrate we invited Donnie Souders, Jobsite Safety Manager with Werner Co, to talk to our employees about ladder safety. Our Maintenance Dept. and Utility Crews learned how to properly inspect a ladder before using it, common defects to look for, and how to properly use various stepladders, straight ladders and extension ladders. This training follows ladder safety toolbox talks held earlier in the month. Slips, Trips and Falls are the most common cause of injuries and fatalities in the construction industry, so by educating employees we can minimize that hazard and everyone will go home safely at the end of the day.
