- Always use a sturdy ladder while climbing and make sure to wear slip-resistant shoes, like ones with rubber soles

- Face the ladder while climbing up and down, and make sure to keep your body centered on the ladder

- Stand below the "safe standing level" on a ladder, for aa stepladder this is the second step from the top

- Make sure all locks on the ladder are in place and keep the ladder on ground level

- NEVER climb a chair, it is far too dangerous so always use a ladder
