Health and safety best practice encourages the use of scaffolding towers or powered access equipment for tasks at height, however, sometimes the use of ladder will be required; usually because of space restrictions or where the task in hand is simple enough for ladders to be the most practical option. Ladder safety training enables people to use ladders safely and sensibly when required.

Our ladder safety training equips with the skills to conduct inspections, to minimise risk whilst using ladders. It allows them to conduct risk assessments and select the right equipment for the job according to the height to be accessed. While ladders can be used for low height tasks, it is important to take appropriate measures to reduce risk and candidates will leave able to understand these risks and take precautions.
