OSHA has developed detailed regulations related to the proper design and use of ladders and stairways in construction (29 CFR 1926 Subpart X) because careless construction, use, and maintenance of ladders and stairways are a frequent cause of falls, injuries and, occasionally, deaths. The regulations describe everything from how far apart rungs should be to specific do's and don'ts for ladder safety.
