As of 2016, a good ladder safety checklist includes the one found at the website of the North Carolina State University and a couple on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration website. The OSHA website provides PDF checklists for several types of ladders.
This ladder checklist on the North Carolina State University website is broken into two areas of concern. The first section is dedicated to ladder inspection. In the second section, the checklist covers the correct procedures for using the ladder.
On the OSHA website, there are ladder safety checklists for mobile ladders, portable ladders and portable ladders for construction sites. Users select the type of ladder checklist they want and download the file for printing.
