ladder inspection

As part of our commitment to the improvement of safety within the Work at Height industry T&I Solutions offer a service to inspect and advise on any ladders or access equipment. All access equipment should be 'tagged' given a unique asset number and entered on an access register. T&I Solutions can undertake all aspect of this work ensuring your company meets any HSE or insurance requirements.

Why Inspect?

  • Many insurers insist on a ladder inspection regime and register to offer cover
  • Without inspection ladders fall outside HSE recommendations
  • Almost all injuries on ladders occur when the user is untrained or the ladder is not fit for purpose.
  • It is within an employers duty of care to ensure that all equipment is maintain to a suitable standard

Ladder Association and HSE Advice

'Ladders are not banned' this is important advice given by both the HSE themselves and their affiliate training company The Ladder Association. A ladder can be used in the following circumstance:

  • Short duration
  • Trained operatives
  • Fully risk assessed procedures
  • The correct ladder, and class of ladder, are used

Many tasks are most safely completed off ladders.
