Oregon incorporates by reference the federal regulations for ladders, but adds additional state requirements beyond the federal requirements. A summary of the additional requirements includes the following:
- Oregon added definitions and requirements for job-made ladders, self-supporting ladders, and non-self-supporting ladders.
- The state adopted the ANSI standards for wood, metal, and plastic ladders.
- Each self-supporting ladder or combination ladder used in a self-supporting ladder mode is equipped with a metal spreader or locking device that securely holds the front and back sections in a fully open position while the ladder is in use.
- Employers must ensure:
- No employee steps, jumps or otherwise moves from one erected ladder to another.
- Ladders are not used as planks or bridges between walking-working surfaces or in other horizontal applications.
- Ladders are not used to gain additional height from elevated surfaces such as scaffolds, truck beds, vehicle bodies, tractor scoops or boom truck buckets.
- Ladders are not used as supports for working platforms or scaffolding planks unless approved for such purposes by the ladder manufacturer
