Our LA Ladder & Step Ladder User's Course delivers a minimum of 4 hours of instruction and is designed to instruct up to a maximum of 8 delegates, providing training for users, supervisors and managers wanting to equip themselves with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to use ladders and step ladders legally and safely. Written with the guidance from the UK's leading experts on ladder manufacture, maintenance and safety, the Ladder Association scheme addresses all the issues raised by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and, more recently, the Work and Height Regulations 2005.
Under the regulations every person in the chain leading up to, and including, the final user, has a duty of care to both themselves and others to know and understand the practical implications of working safety at height. Demonstration of competence is a key requirement of the new regulations and successful completion of the L.A Ladder and Step Ladder Training Course provides proof of such competence.
Duration: 0.5 Days
This course is aimed at personnel who are or will be responsible for use of Ladders and Step Ladders in the workplace. There are no prerequisites required for this course although a working knowledge of ladders is an advantage.
Since the safe use of ladders and step ladders requires that delegates consult safety notices and read and thoroughly understand the manufacturer’s instruction manual, English literacy and language comprehension are important requirements for any ladder user. In addition, delegates should be fit and capable of lifting and carrying ladders and step ladders.
Please note that delegates will be expected to work at height whilst climbing a ladder for the practical, so please ensure delegates are in good health and do not have a fear of heights that may preclude them from taking part in the practical assessment.
Delegates will also require to attend and successfully pass this course in order to progress to the inspection course.
