Ladder Safety

Ladders and stepladders are commonplace items of access equipment that serve a useful purpose in many work activities.  Unfortunately, they can be easily misused and will enable workers to access dangerous places where a fall from height can lead to tragic consequences.  The use of a ladder or stepladder has never been banned under H&S law, but their safe use is subject to risk assessment and the thoughtful planning of work activities where they may be needed.
