This great safety advice comes to us from the National Roofing Contractors Association:
Before setting up a ladder, inspect it for defects.
- Make sure the latches on extension ladders are secured before climbing.
- Never use a ladder with split or missing rungs.
- Never use a ladder with grcase, oil, or any other slippery substance on the rungs or rails. Defective ladders that cannot be repaired on the spot must be tagged and removed. Make sure the ladder feet move freely and are slip-resistant.
Always be safe when working on a ladder!
Until next time!
