Workplace Health & Safety | Ladder Safety Programme and Training Materials

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 apply to the use of ladders and stepladders in the workplace. Employers should make sure that:

  • All employees are properly trained and competent;
  • The work at height is properly planned and organised;
  • Equipment (ladders and stepladders) are properly inspected;
  • Surrounding circumstances are properly controlled.

Make sure that all procedures are also developed in accordance with provisions outlined in the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, and any other Acts or Regulations that may apply to your organisation.
