Using a telescopic ladder, scaffolding, or any other type of ladder to work alone at high places can be dangerous. It is best to be accompanied by other people to ensure safer work at heights.

If you have no choice, there are steps you can take to ensure that you work safely at heights, even if you are alone.

1. Have you received proper training?

Without proper training, you should not work at heights, either alone or with other people. You want to make sure that you are well trained in the safety measures for using scaffolding, telescopic ladders, and other equipment used to work at heights. If you have not received the correct training, you certainly don't want to work in heights alone.

2. Use safety equipment

If you must work alone at heights, use the correct safety equipment. Safety belts are very useful, and other protective equipment can make it safer to work alone at heights.

One of the most important safety hazards of ladders has little to do with you as a climber, but with your surroundings. Look at the area where you work. There are some obstacles that don't necessarily make it impossible to work on your ladder, it just means that you have to work more carefully and occasionally compensate to make your climb safer. However, in inclement weather, smooth surfaces or muddy conditions, it is a good idea to consider rescheduling your project for the day.


3. Planning before work

A plan will help make working at heights safer. You want to make sure you know what you want to accomplish and how you will accomplish it.

Why should you work with partners?

When using a telescopic ladder, scaffolding or any other ladder to work at heights, you should have a partner. There are several good reasons to have a partner, including:

Awareness-With your partner, you have two pairs of eyes that can help you avoid harm.

Helpers-partners can reduce the possibility of you trying to use too many tools or heavy materials to climb the telescopic ladder.

Continuous check-in – Find someone to check-in to help you ensure that you take a break, get water, or stop working under unsafe conditions.

When working at heights, working with a partner is always the first choice. If you have to work on your own, you can use technology, video chat, remote assessments, and other tools to help make it safer.
