Falling a common cause of injury in the workplace. Typical stepladders fold out with just the steps. Safety stepladders offer stabilizing handrails on either side to avoid falling. Workers can easily grasp the handles to assist climbing the steps.
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. Safety Step ladders have hand rails at the top for a secure work surface. A worker with a prosthetic leg would be safer utilizing a safety step ladder providing handrails rather than a step ladder that requires strong legs and good balance.
Workers with common conditions such as these would benefit from a Safety Step ladder: Back Injury, Cancer, Fused Vertebrae, Herniated Disc, Lumbar/Low Back Pain, Rotator Cuff Injury, Ruptured Disc, Shoulder Replacement, Slipped Disc, Osteoarthritis (weight bearing joints).
