1 When going up and down the ladder, you should face the ladder, keep three-point contact, and do not carry heavy tools and materials. The  ladder should meet the load-bearing requirements, be of appropriate length, and be easy to operate.

2 The slope of the ladder should be appropriate, and the horizontal distance between the contact point at the upper end of the ladder and the support point at the lower end should be equal to one-fourth to one-third of the distance between the contact point and the support 
3 Do not operate remotely by tilting your body. Excessive extension of your limbs for construction operations will cause body imbalance and fall. Do not step on the ladder with one foot, nor use your legs or feet to move the ladder.

4 Do not sit on a ladder to operate. When using a herringbone ladder, the hasp should be fastened firmly.
When working on live lines or working near running equipment, insulated ladders and step stools should be, and metal ladders should not be used.

5 The ladder should be installed stably and reliably. The foundation and the supporting objects should be stable and able to bear the maximum load on the ladder. The ground should be flat, free of debris, and not slippery.

6 Wear non-slip shoes when working on a ladder, and no two or more people should work on the same ladder or go up and down; when using a straight ladder or a taller herringbone ladder, there should be a personal escalator.

7 When using a straight ladder, you should stand on the ladder step not less than 1m away  the top of the ladder. When the ladder rests on the hanging line, the upper end of the ladder should be at least 30cm higher than the hanging line (except for the iron hook on the upper end of the ladder), but the higher part Must not exceed one third of the height of the ladder.

8 Before using the ladder, please confirm whether the ladder is in good condition. The accessories of the ladder should be complete. The connection of each part should be firm. There should be no skew, broken, loose, cracked, decayed, twisted, deformed and other defects between the ladder beam and the pedal. Folding ladders and telescopic ladders should move freely. The ropes of the telescopic ladder should be free  damage or broken strands. The metal ladder pedals should be treated with anti-skid treatment, and the ladder feet should be equipped with anti-skid insulation ladders with anti-skid insulation rubber pads.
