Ladder inspection is one of the first steps to climbing safely. Here are some of the steps to a good inspection:
-Check the rails
-Check any connectors and fasteners.
-Inspect the rungs to make sure they are in good shape.
-You also want to make sure any locks or pulleys work correctly.
-Check the condition of the ladder feet. If the treads are worn or dirt filled, get new feet, or clean them out.
