If you or your staff use ladders, then they must be adequately trained. Our course provides the basics on ladder selection, inspection, use and storage.
The Work at Height Regulations state that ladders can be used for work at height when a risk assessment has shown that using equipment offering a higher level of fall protection is not feasible or justifiable due to low risk or short duration of use or there is no other safer way of accessing the work area.
