Stairways and Ladders
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on OSHA construction safety and health standards that apply to all stairways and ladders used in construction, alteration, repair, painting, decorating and demolition of worksites.


Stairways and ladders are major sources of injuries and fatalities among construction workers, and many of the injuries are serious enough to require time off the job. OSHA recognizes that carelessness/misuse in using stairways and ladders presents serious danger to all workers involved.
