Falls from ladders are usually sudden and painful. Lack of training and unsafe work practices such as reaching out too far or working off unstable ladders are common causes of falls. Think of the injuries you will most likely experience when you hit the ground below: fractures, broken bones, cuts and being "knocked out".
You are responsible for following the training and safe work practices of your teachers and employers.
Do not be afraid to ask questions. If you don't know or you're not sure, ask your teacher or foreman before starting your work.
