Safety Ladder / Ladder

Safety Ladder
Safety Ladder

Traditional ladders can be tedious and dangerous for workers nowadays. In order for workers to perform their electrical works, they most likely have to use extension cables in order perform their tasks. However, the problems with this, is that it is ineffective and most importantly a danger to the workers.
The Safety Ladder will maintain the traditional structure of a ladder, however contains a built in socket. This enables the worker to use his tools more arbitrarily and safer, rather than to worry about the problems with an extension cable, a short circuit as well as intertwined cables.
