According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), over 500,000 people are treated each year for ladder related falls. Whether you use a ladder out in the field, in your workplace or at home, safety should always be your number one priority.
At VERTEX, safety is part of our culture. We recently hosted our 2nd Annual Health and Safety Day. As part of our awareness training, VERTEX’s Director of Health and Safety Operations, Kevin Heffernan, CSHO, SHS, PSSHF, explained the proper use of both a-frame and extension ladders on the job site.
