How should you position a step ladder?

There is a variety of daily tools that play an important role in our life, such making a fence with hammers and nails and cutting the wood with a saw and so on, among which the step ladder is significant as well. Step ladders are often used to help repair something out of reach. And on the account of the fact that step ladders are always bulky and heavy, how to position the step ladder has annoyed us all the time. Therefore, I want to give you some advice on how to place your step ladders, expecting to help you to some extent.

For one thing, we should avoid pushing or pulling stepladders from the side. In fact, it is known to all the step ladders regardless the small step ladder or the folding step ladder are very heavy to move. And there is an acknowledgement that we always place the step ladder against the wall and need someone to stay aside to stabilize the step ladder. Additionally, what should be born in mind is that repeated sideways movement can make ladders wobbly since they are weaker or less stable in those directions. So avoiding pushing or pulling stepladders from the side is extremely critical so as to prevent the occurrence of some dangers that can lead to our injuries. 

For another thing, we should face the step ladder when climbing up or down. When using the step ladder to go up and down to repair something, it is a must to face the step ladder and take without any sharp objects in hand. That is to avoid being hurt by the thing you take in hand once you fall to the ground from the step ladder. In addition, people who use the step ladder should stand on the pedal not less than one meter from the top of the step ladder and cannot use the step ladder that is not high enough to work. So when people stand on the second level of the step ladder to operate, their two feet should be stepped on the ladder braces on both sides of the step ladder to keep your body centered between side rails. 

Moreover, we should maintain a firm grip when we use the step ladder. When you climb the step ladder up or down, you should grasp the step ladder firmly to avoid falling down. Therefore, you had better invite someone to help you with giving the tools you need when you come to the appropriate level of the step ladder in order to keep your hands empty to ensure the safety of climbing the step ladder. Furthermore, the shoes you wear to work should be soft and anti-skidding so that slippers are not proper. What is more, more than two workers on the step ladder at the same time is forbidden because it will increase the risk of falling down. 

Simply put, when you intend to use the step ladder to work, you should position the step ladder appropriately to avoid the occurrence of dangers. That is all that counts.
