Courtesy of Laborers Health and Safety Fund of North America comes a new handout detailing how to use a ladder safely. From the handout:

What is the most dangerous piece of equipment on a construction site? A Ladder.

Each year over 4,000 construction workers are injured and about 70 die falling from ladders. One out of every 18 injuries in construction is from a ladder fall.
