Our LA Ladder and Step Ladder User & Inspection Training Course provides training for users, supervisors and managers wanting to equip themselves with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to use and formally inspect 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, Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 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.
This course consists of a training room lecture, DVD presentation, written assessment, practical training and assessment.
In order to attend, you must bring:
Safety hat & chin strap
Mask and gloves
