    Washington – OSHA recently published four guidance documents as part of its campaign focusing on fall prevention in the construction industry.

    The documents pertain to ladder safety and include a ladder safety booklet and fact sheets on extension ladders, wooden ladders, and stepladders.

    Falls are the leading cause of death in construction, having caused more than a third of all construction fatalities in 2010, according to OSHA.
