About 150,000 people are treated in hospitals every year for injuries incurred while working with a ladder, and to many of these are fatalities. The overwhelming number of ladder injuries occur at homes, but an accident in the workplace can cause enormous problems, including dealing with traumatized co-workers, OSHA, insurance and workers comp.
Human error is by far the leading cause of ladder accidents. In this short video we discuss the "belt buckle" rule that says a person on a ladder must always keep his or her belt buckle between the uprights in order to prevent accidents and injuries.
Good risk management and cost control measures include training every worker and providing frequent reminders about safety and accident prevention. That is the purpose of this video.
