I have a couple of safety questions that maybe somebody can help me with.

Is it true that OSHA requires you to keep daily ladder log books?  Where can I find more info if this is true?

OSHA requires that ladders must extend 3 feet above where they are placed on roofs.  Does this apply if you use a ladder stabilizer like AC's?  What is the purpose of this rule.

No, unless you drive a commercial truck (F-650) or bigger. Then only if you drive further than 150 miles away from your company address.

The reason for the 3' rule is so that you are able to to use the three point rule. Three points of contact with the ladder at all times

Having the ladder extended at least 3' above eave level definitely makes re-entry from roof to ladder much easier and safer... especially when ice is involved.
