OHSA doesn’t have a specific standard for ladder training. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.”
Canada on the other hand has applicable federal requirements regarding ladders. There are also several standards from different provinces and territories.
Because of these requirements, employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with the ladder. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.
