Handling

 

The ladder should not be dropped or jarred. If timber ladders are hit by a heavy blow they may suffer compression damage, distortion, loosened rungs or cracked stiles. If a ladder has been damaged, it should not be used again. A thorough examination and appropriate action should be conducted and taken when necessary such as repair by a competent person or scrapping.


Check 


Ladders should be capable of being individually identified. In addition to normal inspection of steel ladder before and after use, they should be examined regularly by a competent person. Ladders that are found to be defective should be suitably labelled or marked and withdrawn from service until repaired. The process of inspection should include checking rungs, treads, crossbars and stiles for defect, rung to stile connections, ropes, cables and all fittings, locks, wheels, pulleys, rivets, screws and hinges.


Storage


Ladders should be stored well after using, which helps prevent breaking of the ladder. Storage areas should be easily accessible and be kept in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children. Ladders should be stored on racks designed for their protection when not in use. The racks should have sufficient supporting points to prevent excessive sagging. If ladders are made from aluminum or plastic, it is important to prevent ladders from direct sunlight, as direct sunlight will cause damage to construction material. What’s more, ladders should not be stored near radiators, stoves, steam, pipes or in areas subject to excessive heat or dampness. 


The storage and maintenance of ladders are often overlooked by people, which may cause damage to one’s body, even one’s life. Therefore, it is of great importance to know not only how to use a ladder, but also how to store a ladder to avoid potential risks. But in fact, instead of learning how to maintain a storied ladder, you would rather pick a durable and high quality ladder brand, like STABLE MASTER.
