Rolling ladders can be used in place of step ladders when working on tall equipment or maintenance projects. Fueling machinery, adjusting mirrors, repairing truck tarps and hundreds of other tasks requires climbing ladders. Workers with lower and upper extremity impairments cannot safely use regular step ladders or extension ladders that require strong arms and legs plus good balance to climb. Rolling ladders provide wide, stable step surfaces with hand rails and a platform at the top for a secure work surface. Wheels on the base allow the ladder to be conveniently moved around the farm . A worker with a prosthetic leg would be safer utilizing a rolling ladder providing wide stable step surfaces and handrails rather than a step ladder that requires strong legs and good balance.
Workers with common conditions such as these would benefit from a Rolling Ladder.
