About Ladder Safety Training

This ladder safety training course provides vital information that anyone working with ladders needs to be aware of. It looks at various ladder types, assessing ladder use, pre-use checks, how to safely work from them and other key safety information. This course comes with a free e-Checklist, which takes users step-by-step through the ladder safety while ensuring it is recorded.

The inappropriate use of ladders is a common reason for severe to fatal accidents in the workplace. Almost 24% of all workplace deaths involved falls from height, according to the current data from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). A noteworthy number of these accidents involve incorrect use of ladders.

Why Is Ladder Safety Training Important?

One of the most common causes of these accidents involving work at height is human error. By being aware of the hazards and using the correct controls, employees can learn to minimise the risk involved.

Employers also have a legal duty to ensure workplace ladder safety. They have to follow the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work 1999 regulations. They require that employers identify the risks in the workplace and control for those risks, including the risk of work at height. Under these regulations, they must also provide adequate training.

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998 require that employers ensure all work equipment is suitable, including ladders. They must also be only used when and where appropriate.

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 gives specific guidelines for ladders, stating how they must be set up, placed, and stored for safe use.
