Abstract
Falls are the leading cause of death among construction workers. Ladder falls take their toll in injuries as well, especially among older workers. Three presenters cover different topics on ladder safety: initial findings on ladder-related injuries from ER visits, the development of a tool to assess the safety of portable ladders, and an overview of a four-year study to improve extension ladder safety.
