Ladder Safety Training

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.

The Dorset Construction Training Forum which has 58 Dorset based construction companies as members have been working with Award H&S for four years. During this time Chris and his team have delivered asbestos awareness training and scaffold safety training courses to our members.
