When using an extension ladder, firmly plant both feet on solid ground. Do not put the base of the ladder too close or too far from the vertical surface it is propped against.

Your weight should be positioned between the base of the ladder and vertical surface.

Make sure that all legs of a scaffold are firmly planted on solid ground. Use blocks of wood on softer ground to provide better support. Always stand on platforms in between the supports that hold it up.
