Did you know that falls from ladders are one of the leading causes of workplace injuries and lost labour time in Ontario? According to workplace health and safety regulations in Ontario, (specifically the OHSA reg. 851 on industrial establishments), if workers at your place of business or worksite utilize ladders in conducting their work duties - whether they are step, extension or fixed ladders - they must receive training and education on the proper usage of ladders and their safety procedures to legally comply with federal and provincial workplace safety legislation.
This course will cover the general duties of the various roles within the workplace (employers/owners, supervisors and employees), best practices when it comes to the use of ladders (pre-inspection, safe setup procedures and how to work safely on a ladder) and a comprehensive inspection of the ladders used at your workplace at no additional cost. Our course was built to increase awareness and reduce ladder-related injuries in a variety of workplace environments including warehousing, construction, manufacturing, maintenance facilities, utilities and others.
