    Speaker Notes:

    When scaffold platforms are more than 2 feet above or below a point of access, portable ladders, hook-on ladders, attachable ladders, or other means of safe access must be provided. Other types of access may include stair towers, ramps, or walkways.

    When using portable hook-on ladders, they must be positioned so they do not tip the scaffold over.

    Additionally, the spacing of the ladder rungs must be 16 inches or less and have a minimum length of 11 inches.

    Following these guidelines will allow you to safely access scaffolding and reduce your risk of falls.
