SAFETY TIPS 8:
It’s mandatory to keep the ladder clear of ice and snow to help prevent slips and falls. If the ladder becomes covered in ice or snow, it can be very slippery and difficult to hold onto, increasing the risk of a fall. To help prevent this, be sure to clean the ladder off before climbing, and take extra care to avoid leaning too far to one side or overreaching.
If the ladder is too slippery to climb safely, it may be necessary to wait for the ice or snow to melt or to use a different ladder. You can also try using a ladder with non-slip feet or rubber shoes, which can help to provide a better grip on slippery surfaces.
Remember, it’s always important to follow all safety guidelines and use common sense when working with ladders, especially in icy or snowy conditions.
