Ladder Safety Training is a ½ day (up to 3 hours) training course conducted on your site for a maximum of 12 delegates.
This ladder safety training course meets the statutory requirements of the Health & Safety Executive. The law says that ladders can be used for work at height when a risk assessment has shown that using equipment offering a higher level of fall protection is not justified because of the low risk and short duration of use; or there are existing workplace features which cannot be altered.
Short duration is not the deciding factor in establishing whether an activity is acceptable or not – you should have first considered the risk. As a guide, if your task would require staying up a leaning ladder or stepladder for more than 30 minutes at a time, it is recommended that you consider alternative equipment.
You should only use ladders in situations where they can be used safely, eg where the ladder will be level and stable, and where its reasonably practicable to do so, the ladder can be secured.

We used Award for some essential site staff training in Manual Handling and Working at Heights and were extremely pleased with what was delivered. The training was engaging and fun and staff gave it great feedback. The fact the training was in house kept costs and travelling times right down. I will use Award for all the training I possibly can from now on!
The Downs School,
Two years ago we first heard of Award H&S when we were looking for a local company to provide training for us, as our current H&S consultants worked out as non cost effective solution.
Chris came along and carried out the training for us and the amount of positive feedback I received from operatives and management was unbelievable. They liked Chris’s teaching manner in the way he made things simple and put things into basic English that everyone understood.
Our relationship has now got stronger and stronger and we now consider Award as an extension of our own company, and long may it continue!
Lifetime Construction Ltd
I would just like to say a huge thank you for the work your company have provided for us with the health and safety course. Chris was an incredible teacher and was able to present the course to everyone’s abilities.
We will be in contact regarding other courses as the service you have provided is outstanding.
