There is nothing good about falling off of a ladder. Even more so when that fall could have been prevented. The tallest tool in the toolbox is also one that requires both caution and training.
What is Ladder Safety Training?
Ladders bring portability and flexibility to any job that extends above the ground. But if not used correctly, ladders can be dangerous. This online training program will present how to select the right ladder for the job, how to inspect a ladder for damage, how to set up a ladder properly and finally how to climb and work on a ladder safely. The program includes information on step ladders, extension ladders and articulated or multi-purpose ladders.
After you have finished your training, you should be able to:
- Understand what it means to be safe when working with and around ladders.
- Choose the right ladder for the job you are doing. Not all ladders are made for every type of job.
- Inspect ladders to ensure they are in good working condition and that no parts are missing or damaged.
- Properly set up a ladder for the type of area that you will be working in.
- Safely climb a ladder with the tools you need and safely work on a ladder to ensure you don’t fall.

During online training, participants will be assessed by end-of-lesson quizzes. These quizzes are designed to test understanding of the material, and usually reference key concepts as well as how this training relates to personal work environments.
End-of-course tests assess and encompass the scope of the entire course, and are meant as a means to determine understanding of content. By completing these assessments, a course certification will be awarded to the account.
All courses, lessons, topics and quizzes have been designed to take best practices into account. From Distraction-Free Learning Environments to Ease of Use, MyLMS is an industry standard and leader when it comes to online learning solutions.
