– placing a ladder on an uneven work surface

– placing the ladder on a nail, stone, or other construction debris which may cause the ladder to become unsteady

– using a ladder in a small space where it cannot fully open

– using an old, worn, or broken ladder

– using a ladder with either no footing on the bottom or defective footing

OSHA regulations require among other things that ladders be placed on secure footing, that defective ladders be labeled “dangerous: do not use” and removed from work sites, and that ladders be secured or held in position to prevent tipping.
