How to safely use ladders in your work Environment

According to the Corporation des Maîtres Électriciens du Québec (CMEQ), there are certain working methods to be followed to ensure safety during electrical connection work. Indeed, their committee suggests installing a stabilizer at the top of the ladder and retaining the work at the rung of the ladder using an AP class safety harness and an F class securing cord. You can consult their document presenting 2 steps, the first one including the principles relating to the safe planning of tasks applicable to work at height and the second one including the parameters to be respected and the suggested safe working procedure for the use of ladders in the absence of an anchorage point and fall arrest link.


To improve ergonomics and stability, a platform can be used according to the manufacturer's recommendations.

Double Round of Class F Lanyard

Attach yourself to one of the ladder rungs (tie bar). Make a double round of Class F lanyard in the center of the tie bar.

Distance between the worker and the tie bar

In order to limit the vertical movement to 30cm (12 in), a distance of approximately 20cm (8 in) shall be separate the worker from the tie bar.
