Before climbing a ladder, check for stability. Make sure the ladder is level and the base cannot slide. Inspect the shoes and rungs for defects, grease or mud to minimize a possible slip. Step ladders should never be used when folded and leaning against a surface. Make sure the step ladder is fully open with the spreader bar down and locked in place.
