Ladder Safety 
 
 
  • Use wooden or fiberglass ladders when near power lines and electrical wiring. Metal ladders conduct electricity.
     
  • Always carry a ladder horizontally, not vertically to avoid contact with power lines.
     
  • Exercise precautions when using ladders or cleaning near a service drop, where the wiring comes into your home by the meter. The wires are covered with weatherproofing material, not insulation. The material can become brittle or cracked and may expose energized wires.
