Ladder Association launches ladder safety campaign

The Ladder Association has updated its Code of Practice and launched a campaign for improved ladder safety.
Ladder Association launches ladder safety campaign
The new document contains advice for ladder users and employers and the introduction coincides with the launch of the association's 'Don't be a ladder lightweight' campaign.

The campaign aims to combat the dangerous mentality of ladder users who rely solely on learning on the job.

The Code of Practice covers everything from the Work at Height Regulations and managing risk, to ladder selection, safe use and inspection.

It is hoped the document will encourage better safety and best practice among the UK's estimated two million ladder users.

The code also contains a risk assessment template covering planning, setting up the job, carrying out the task and inspecting and maintaining ladders.

It offers easy-to-follow practical advice in five distinct sections. It will be welcomed on-site and as a handy reference in the office.

The document may be used as a stand-alone reference but it is not intended to replace professional ladder training.

'This is a supplementary resource which should serve as a useful reminder to those who have attended Ladder Association training courses,' insisted Ladder Association chairman, Chris Ball.

The Ladder Association's Code of Practice costs £5 including postage. For details visit www.ladderassociation.org.uk
