Ladder Safety Training Course
Falls from height are the number one cause of workplace deaths and one of the main causes of major injury in the workplace. Almost a third of falls are from ladders. We need to realise that using a ladder or a step ladder just isn’t as straight forward as we first thought! Ladder Safety Training is essential. This Ladder Safety Training Course covers legislation from the Work at Height Regulations 2005. It provides staff with the general safety awareness needed for safe selection, inspection and use of ladders.
