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.
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
