Course Overview

Falling from a height is just as common as it is dangerous, and at least one third of all fall injuries involve ladders. This makes ladders one of the largest causes of accidents and injuries - both in the workplace and at home. With this in mind, our Ladder Safety Training is a simple yet crucial course to equip yourself with.

You don’t need to be formally qualified to use a ladder, but you do have to be competent. Our Ladder Safety Course has been created to strengthen the skills and knowledge needed to use ladders safely.

It’s extremely important to choose the appropriate ladder depending on the situation. Next you need to know how to properly assemble the ladder, and finally, disassemble as well as carry them from location to location.

The course is split into four short sections, including Ladder Safety Steps, Selection, Pre-Check, Setup and Use.

This Ladder Safety Training can be used in conjunction with our Working at Height Training.

As well as printable user certificates, training progress and results are all stored centrally in your LMS (Learning Management System). This can be accessed at any time to reprint certificates, check & set pass marks, and serve as proof of commitment to ongoing legal compliance.

What does my certificate include?

Your Ladder Safety Training Certificate includes your name, company name (if applicable), name of course taken, pass percentage, date of completion, expiry date and stamps of approval or accreditations by recognised authorities.

Please note, if you are using our course content via SCORM in a third party LMS, then we are unable to provide certificates and you will need to generate these yourself in your host LMS.

Why is Ladder Safety Training important?

It's important that you comply with the law, as well as understand the ways in which it affects you in the workplace.

Work at Height Regulations 2005 (WAHR)

These regulations were established to prevent deaths and injuries caused by falls from height. Anyone in control of work performed at height need to ensure that work is carefully planned, supervised and most importantly, carried out by competent people.

Employees have general legal duties to take reasonable care of themselves and others who may be affected by their actions, and to co-operate with their employer to enable their health & safety duties and requirements to be complied with. HSE
