Ladders may look simple and many operators think common sense will get them by – but statistically the inappropriate or incorrect use of ladders and stepladders have contributed to an average of 14 deaths and 1,200 major injuries each year in the UK, and £££ worth of fines for companies relying on ‘common sense alone’.

Course includes:

  • Health & Safety Laws & Regulations – understanding your legal duty under the Work at Height Regulations 2005
  • The responsibilities of the employer and employee
  • Determining if a ladder/step ladder is the right equipment to use using the 3 point ‘hierarchy of control’ risk assessment guide
  • How to choose the right ladder/step ladder for the task
  • A step by step guide of carrying out pre-use inspections, how often these must be done & who is responsible for this
  • How to use the ladder/step ladder safely to minimise risk and sensible safety precautions

  • Storage, maintenance and keeping your kit safe & legal
  • The importance of issuing and using the correct PPE, and step by step guide of how to inspect it
  • How to select the correct equipment for the task
  • All the above is intermingled with practical sessions
  • Test paper/questions/ handouts & review

FAQs

  1. Q: Are ladders banned by the HSE?

    A: No - this is a myth.  Ladders may be a suitable option for short duration work of a simple nature.  Longer work requires more suitable equipment.
