"According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 80% of all falls from ladders occur at the top of the ladder and 50% of falls from ladders occur during the transition from the ladder to a second surface."
Designed to attach over the top of the ladder and provide a safe and easy transition from the ladder to a second surface, the Safe-T Ladder™ requires no tools, drilling or bolting to hold it securely in place. Once installed, the unit provides two offsetting handrails that can be used to walk through and step on or off the ladder.
The patented Safe-T Ladder™ also helps workers comply with OSHA standard 1926.1053(b)(1) which states: "When portable ladders are used for access to an upper landing surface, the ladder side rails shall extend at least 3 feet (.9 m) above the upper landing surface to which the ladder is used to gain access."
Meets OSHA standard 1926.502(b)(3) and OSHA standard 1926.1053(b)(1) as well as ANSI standard a14.2 section 8.3.3.
