Case Study: A 32-year-old Hispanic worker was painting a private residence. When he was done working for the day, he began to clean up. He picked up his 40-foot metal ladder and retracted it to approximately 20 feet. He then carried the ladder upright back to the work van. As he was walking, the top of the ladder contacted a 13,200-volt overhead power line located just over 20 feet above the ground. The painter was electrocuted and fell to the ground. He was taken to the local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazards such as ladders and stairways.

To ensure compliance with ladder and stairway safety, safety training must be conducted periodically and as-needed to ensure the work environment is free from recognized hazards. Refresher training should also occur whenever changes to the worksite, equipment, or tasks render previous training obsolete. This OSHA ladder training course meets these training requirements.
