Pam 3 |
Move the ladder away from the building
so that it can be set at the proper angle.
Carefully and firmly grip the ladder before
moving — keep it vertical.
Get help with heavier ladders.
Walk up,
hand-over-hand
First check for sufficient overhead clearance and make sure
there are no power lines. Carefully erect the ladder by “walking”
it up to a vertical position. Be sure the bottom is securely blocked
against a fixed object or "footed” by another person.
MOTE: While raising an extension ladder, keep knees bent
slightly and back straight to avoid lifting injuries.
Step 4.
RAISE FLY SECTION:
Carefully raise the fly section using the
rope and pulley system. After the bottom
rung of the fly section clears the bottom
rung of the base section, place one foot
on the base rung to provide continuous
firm footing.
Step 5.
PLACE AGAINST BUILDING
Carefully lean ladder against building at
the correct 75-16" angle. The base should
be | foot out for each 4 feet of ladder
length to the upper support point.
Extend the ladder 3 feet above the roof
edge for access. Be sure both end caps
or contact points are resting firmly and
securely against the building.

SAFE CLIMBING HABITS - THE RIGHT WAY
Ladders are such common tools that many people assume they know how to climb safely when in fact they may not. Safe and efficient
use of ladders is not complicated or difficult, but it does require that users learn and practice proper ladder safety habits. Start by
carefully reading and following all instructions.
Climb facing the
ladder. Center
your body
between the
rails. Maintain
a firm grip.
Keep your body
centered on the
ladder while
working.
As a general
guide, never lat
