OSHA Rated Aluminum Ladders Help Prevent Fall Accidents in the Workplace
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reports that thousands of people get injured each year from fall accidents involving ladders. And hundreds more die from ladder-related fall accidents. These numbers are the reason why only OSHA rated aluminum ladders should be used for work, whether in commercial, construction, or industrial applications.
OSHA Rated Heavy Duty Aluminum Ladders
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which is part of the US Department of Labor, oversees workplace safety for employees and employers mostly in the private sector. The general work environment as well as tools, equipment, machinery, and hazardous materials all need to be used, stored, and disposed of according to OSHA standards.
For work applications that require the use of aluminum ladders, OSHA rated aluminum ladders are strongly advised for two reasons: First, OSHA rated heavy duty aluminum ladders help prevent ladder-related fall accidents in the workplace. As these ladders have met strict OSHA standards both in quality and design, the risk of fall accidents is reduced. Bear in mind, however, that they must be used exactly for the purpose they were designed for. This means it’s not enough that you are using OSHA rated ladders; they must be used according to their specific purpose as well.
Secondly, aluminum ladders that have met strict OSHA standards may protect your business from certain applicable liabilities, including lawsuits from workers or their families and penalties from authorities or governing bodies for violating workplace safety standards, among others.
