Individuals using ladders are often not mindful of potential hazards associated with ladder use, and may take dangerous risks in the interest of saving time. Standing on the top cap or top step of a ladder, rather than choosing a ladder for a specific job, too often results in injury and sometimes death.
On average, 136,000 people each year are treated in the emergency room as a result of a fall from a ladder. In 2013, the cost for a medical treatment from ladder falls and injuries in the United States exceeded 100 million dollars, with an average of 36 days of lost work.
