How to prevent falls while using a ladder

When an Oklahoma resident is using a portable ladder at his or workplace, it's important that certain safety guidelines be followed in order to avoid injuries. According to the Occupational and Safety Health Administration, protection must be used by construction workers at least six feet off the ground, and workers in general industry should use protection when at least four feet off the ground.

The Bureau for Labor Statistics published study results in 2011 showing that musculoskeletal disorders were the subjects of 33 percent of cases involving employee injuries or illnesses. These types of disorders include such injuries to muscles, nerves and tendons as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendinitis, and they are can occur across a diverse spectrum of careers when workers are overexerted. To help minimize or eliminate the occurrence of these conditions, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration encourages employers to apply ergonomic processes for their workers.
