Ladders and stepladders can be a sensible and practical option for low-risk, short-duration tasks.
It is estimated that over a million businesses and 10 million workers carry out some form of work at height every year (Source: APPG Inquiry Report).
Ladders and stepladders are the most commonly used method of working at height for a wide range of tasks at work and at home, but unfortunately they are often the most misused because they appear so simple that people assume there is not much to know.
As an approved Ladder Association training centre we offer the full range of Ladder and Stepladder User, Manager, Inspection and Steps/Step Stools courses to give you the information and knowledge you need to stay safe when using ladders and prevent falls.
