I found out the hard way that new ladders are not always safe either. While I was building my shop I had one of the new extendable ladders and was putting osb overhead, was on the third rung and it broke. Threw the 4’x8’ sheet to the side and fell to the concrete with small scratches. After looking at the way the rungs were installed I found only two rivots to hold the rungs on.
