Safe use of ladders and step ladders


Every employer shall ensure that no person engages in any activity, including organisation, planning and supervision, in relation to work at height or work equipment for use in such work unless he is competent to do so or, if being trained, is being supervised by a competent person. Ladder and step ladders are the most commonly used and abused working at height equipment! Knowing how to use them correctly and safety allows the operative to make safe decisions based on understanding. Working at height in any form is one of the most dangerous types of work, training will help reduce working at height accidents out of the workplace.
