Areas covered in the course include ladder selection, inspection and maintenance, proper set-up, overhead hazards, climbing and working safely, accidents and first aid, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today.
