WILTON — The Maine Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Standards is hosting a no-charge safety course for employers. The workshop on ladder safety will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Friday, March 6, at the Wilton CareerCenter, 865 US Route 2E

Ladders are a major source of injuries and fatalities in the workplace. However, falls can be reduced if people use caution when climbing ladders or when working in places where falls are a potential hazard. This course will show participants how falls from ladders can be prevented through education that includes planning for their use, inspecting the ladder prior to use and using basic ladder safeguards.
