The construction of an outdoor ladder from aluminum generates sturdiness and corrosion resistance, however, it comes with its downside too, the primary being the electric conductance. Metal ladders are not the safest option, to be used near electrical poles. One must be cautious to avoid any contact with electric sources.
- Don't lean the ladder against an unstable surface such as a window or a gutter. One must always ensure the support of a rigid and stable surface while leaning the ladder. Any unstable or unsturdy surface can disturb the balance, and thus can prove to be harmful to the safety of the user.
- Don't stand on the top rungs of the ladder or overreach while using it. One must always keep the height of the target in mind, before choosing the ladder for outdoor use. If the height of the ladder is less compared to the height of the shelf, avoid scooping over the top rugs, as it may lead to disruption of balance, and cause a potential accident.
- Don't use the ladder if it is damaged, or broken or if any of its parts are missing. One must always ensure that the ladder is present in perfect condition, without any damage, thus preventing any accident.
- Don't use the ladder in adverse weather conditions such as high winds or rain. Heavy winds can cause the ladder to sway, which can make it difficult to maintain balance and control. Rain can also make the ladder slippery, making it challenging to grip and hold onto, which can increase the risk of falls. Using the ladder in adverse conditions can lead to disbalance.
- Don't allow more than one person to climb the ladder at the same time. Allowing more than one person to climb a ladder at the same time can also increase the likelihood of collisions or accidental pushing, which can cause the ladder to become unstable or tip over. Therefore, it's essential to follow this caution and allow only one person at a time to climb the ladder.
