The Risks

Working, climbing or staying on a ladder is risky business and calls for a high level of slip resistance on the ladder rungs as the footing is concentrated on a very small area.

Therefore, it is extra important to make sure that these steps are not smooth and slippery. If you slip on a ladder, there is also the height factor to take into consideration.

Whether it be a free standing or a fixed ladder, you will also be affected by using one or two hands to support yourself, whether you wear something on the ladder, stand still and work or use the ladder as an access point.
Self-bearing or built-in ladders will both demand the support of at least one hand. Therefore, ladder rungs must have good friction and anti-slip protection is vital!

Here is a useful quick guide on ladder safety from Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
