There is a lot you can do to increase your safety when working from step ladders. Handrails make for more comfortable climbing and offer extra support and fall protection when you work. Stabilisers and support legs increase the side stability of the ladder. And when you work safely you can focus better on your job and get it done more efficiently.
Working at more serious heights is always a challenge in terms of safety. As far as standing ladders are concerned, there is a lot you can do to prevent potential accidents. Supporting legs, stabiliser bars, grab rails and tool holders give added safety, as well as helping you work more efficiently.
