Be aware of hazardous conditions and always inspect your equipment before use

Just a reminder that Spring is here, which means severe weather can arrive at a moment’s notice, no matter where you are working.

Wind, rain, hail, thunderstorms and other elements can cause hazardous conditions on jobsites, or your commute to and from work. It’s always good to be prepared for those unexpected storms or hazardous conditions. Ensure your ladders are securely fastened to your vehicles, windshield wipers are in good working condition and all loose items or debris on jobsites are secured as well.

With the constant change in weather, our ladders could see some additional wear and tear. Make sure to properly inspect each ladder prior to use. If your ladder has any defects, tag the ladder out of service and contact the Safety Department to let them know!

Below are some images of ladders with excessive damage:

 If you have any questions or concerns about your equipment, please contact the safety department:
