I ran across a news story about a man who was injured using a ladder. The worker went to the job site and found a damaged ladder, which he reported to his supervisor. He was sent home and returned back to work about a week later. He used a ladder that appeared safe, but fell due to the ladder’s cracked spread bar. The man fell 8 feet.
