Ladder & Step Ladder Inspection Training

From £99.99

Did you know that employers & the self-employed have a legal duty under the Work at Height Regulations 2005 (Regulation 12) to inspect all ladders and step ladders at suitable intervals and each time “exceptional circumstances” have occurred, as well as after setting up?

These formal inspections (for condition, wear, damage, etc,) must be undertaken by a competent person and result in a report that is then kept for a minimum period of time.

Ladder inspection is something that you need to be suitably trained to undertake. In our opinion, doing this sort of training online frankly isn’t sufficient. What you need is hands-on practice and face-to-face guidance, to be able to undertake inspection of ladders & step ladders competently.

Our highly practical ladder & step ladder inspection course will give you the training and confidence to inspect a variety of steps and ladders safely, whether they’re a couple of rungs high to several metres tall.
