Ladder safety should not be learned on the fly.

Visit OrthoInfo.org/LadderSafety.

Climbing on a ladder might be the most dangerous thing you do all year. Foot and ankle fractures can result from unsafe ladder use. Make sure you have the balance and strength to use a ladder. Take the time to secure it properly. Don’t stand above the marked level and always wear lace-up shoes or boots. Check our website for more ladder safety tips.
