Safe climbing

26 February 2008

A pocket-sized safety guide has been developed for ladder and podium users.

The free memo, from scaffold inspection tagging company Scafftag in the UK, includes a checklist to ensure such work is approached safely and methodically.

“The Work at Height Regulations 2005 apply to all work at height where there is a risk of a fall liable to cause personal injury. A common misconception is that low-level height work does represent a potential hazard. However, whether it is conventional ladders, step ladders, kick stools or podiums and whether for temporary or fixed access, regular detailed inspections must be carried out and recorded.”

The company also offers a ladder inspection guide poster that can be displayed on site.

To get a copy of the memo and poster call Scafftag on +44 (0)1446 725 300 or e-mail
