Ladder injuries are preventable, especially with the help of Ladder-Guard, which prevents workers from using the top step of a ladder. This is not only a great safety measure but also the law.

OSHA regulation 1926.1053(b)(13) states, “The top or top step of a stepladder shall not be used as a step.” Additionally, ladder-related violations are in OSHA’s top 10 list for most common OSHA transgressions. Because of the frequency of ladder injuries and violations, OSHA supports ladder safety month in March of every year.
