Tool Box Talk Job-Built Ladders Mobile App
The Tool Box Talk Job-Built Ladders app open up a discussion about ladders built and used on construction sites.
How does it work?
Poorly designed and constructed wooden ladders built on the job site have led to serious injuries to construction workers. The app states that all ladder components must be cut from lumber that is free of defects, and that is construction-grade or better. It includes the dimensions that all ladders should comply to - side rails, rungs etc. It also states that ladders must be tied, blocked, or otherwise secured to prevent them from slipping and that rungs must be nailed directly onto the edges of the side rails. The form also includes a section to record the staff who attended the training including their signature and the company they work for. There is also a section for the manager's remarks about the training.
