More than 120 miners are injured each year from incidents involving falls from ladders, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Join CORESafety in spreading awareness about the importance of the safe use of ladders during National Ladder Safety Month, March 2019.
CORESafety is reminding you of some of the safety tips presented in Module #5 (Training and Competence) and Module #12 (Work Procedures and Permits). Check out our infographic called “How to Be Safe on Ladders” that outlines six safety steps to share with your mining operations.

During March 2019, National Ladder Safety Month will bring heightened awareness to the importance of the safe use of ladders through resources, training and a national dialogue.
