In this “If Walls Could Talk” episode, Jill Bloom speaks with Tammy Clark of Tammy K. Clark Companies. She is an occupational and environmental health and safety professional, as well as an industrial hygienist. A big portion of her clients are in the construction industry. In today’s episode, the two speak about ladder safety and what that entails.

What are the most important things that people need to know about ladder safety? These are the top issues Tammy sees:

  • Improper ladder set up
  • Not having the side-rails of the ladder extending a minimum of three feet
  • Improper use of ladders, such as overreaching, using the wrong type of ladder, etc.

It’s worth it for your company to do a proper ladder safety training so employees know how to set up, work safely and more.
