Step Ladders, Wood Ladders, Extension Ladders, Oh My

Did you know there is evidence of support ladders existing 10,000 years ago in ancient cultures? Modern ladders may not boast as long a history, but one thing ancient and modern ladders share is their utility.  Ladders allow us to complete tasks that would be virtually impossible otherwise.
The modern list of ladder types and uses seem to be endless, but all must be used safely. Most ladder accidents are preventable by following just a few simple rules.  The short training video Ladder Safety can quickly teach you ladder safety basics and have you on your way to safe ladder use.
