Ladder Safety

The Story

Why make a program specifically focused on Ladders when we already have one on Fall Protection?  Ladders are one of the most common sources of workplace injury. According to OHS Canada, more than 40,000 workers get injured annually due to fall accidents. These incidents are all preventable, and we think they are a good fit for reduction using the Soteria120 methodology. That is because most of the danger comes not from the ladders themselves, but from how workers use them.

The Problem:

In ladder related incident in the United States, every day:

  • 1,000 people are injured
  • 100 people are permanently disabled
  • 1 person dies
The numbers in Canada are no better. 

Course Outline:

This program covers the following topics:

  • Equipment
  • Inspection
  • Legislation
  • Safe Work Practices and Procedures

The Solution:

Soteria120’s Safe Ladder Use program is designed for supervisors and workers who work on ladders. Through daily contact with the material, users will not only understand the risks and consequences of working on ladders, they will change their behaviours. Our system assesses the user's knowledge and beliefs about ladder safety, using repetition and examples to reinforce and incentivize safe ladder use.

Your employees will be safer, and you will have the performance data to prove it. Imagine being able to measure, in real time, the performance of your employees and to be able to show that to a compliance officer! We use advanced question theory, original short multi-media clips and positive reinforcement of concepts to ensure the information is retained in long term memory. Unlike traditional one shot instructor led courses, our instructors and materials are always at your disposal, through our app, for quick reference.

I think this would be really helpful for training and getting new employees up to speed with expectations and routines.
