TOOLBOX TIP: EXTENSION LADDER SAFETY


When using an extension ladder, it is important to remember that there are several

characteristics that make them different from other ladders, and you must keep special

safety precautions in mind to protect yourself.

Height Restrictions:

In some cases, work sites may put restrictions on ladder height. When you use longer

ladders, you may find that they cannot be set up at the proper 75 ½ degree angle, even

when fully retracted. To prevent the bottom of the ladder from sliding out, choose a

shorter extension or single ladder.

An extension ladder must extend at least three feet above the top point of support.

Bridging the Gap:

At times, using a certain ladder length can create a gap in the height of a wall that can

be reached by the user. When working with a 14-foot extension ladder, working from the

ladder below 10 feet is a problem, and a stepladder or shorter non-self-supporting ladder

is recommended.
