Walking and Working Surfaces: Ladders
Thursday, June 14, 2018 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm EDT

Knowing how to correctly use a ladder and what safety regulations you should be following is essential to keeping your employees safe. In this session, Gary Jones discusses OSHA requirements for ladders, including use and training requirements. This webinar will also cover compliance resources, including checklists, available to you. Held in conjunction with SGIA
