Ladders are a commonly used tool at self-storage facilities, and the potential for injury is high if proper safety guidelines are not followed. MiniCo’s new video “Ladder Safety” provides information and safety tips to educate facility owners and managers and create awareness of potentially unsafe ladder usage.

Topics addressed in the video include choosing the right ladder, ladder safety rules, ladder inspection tips, guidelines for safely positioning ladders, and the safest techniques for ascending and descending ladders.

MiniCo President and CEO Mike Schofield said, “Unsafe ladder usage can result in injuries to employees and self-storage tenants. The goal of this video is to educate self-storage managers and owners, create an awareness of ladder safety as an ongoing issue on their properties, and provide tools and information to help users work safely and prevent potential injuries.

Previous videos in the series addressed tenant safety for self-storage managers and preventing slips, trips and falls. Future videos are planned on a variety of safety topics relevant to self-storage professionals. Each video will include a link to a quiz designed to reinforce the viewer’s retention of the subject matter.
