Overview: Ladder Test & Inspection

eurosafesolutions Overview: Ladder Test & Inspection Fixed and Temporary Ladders are commonly used in the workplace and fall under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (P.U.W.E.R) 1998. It is required that the "Duty Holder" ensures any work equipment provided is: Suitable for use, and for the purpose and conditions in which it is to be used. Maintained in a safe condition for use so that people's health and safety is not at risk. Inspected to ensure that it is and continues to be, safe for use by a competent person. Safe and staff are suitably trained on how to use and undertake pre-use inspections. Fixed Ladders Generally formed from steel or aluminum, they provide access to places of work, both internally and externally. Examples include roof tops, voids, silos and similar areas. Wherever they are located, it is vital to ensure they are inspected to ensure they remain safe and compliant. As part of the process, our engineers inspect ladders, ensuring the installation is compliant with current legislation, checking for items that may present an obvious hazard, such as slips, trips, falls, impact damage etc. Temporary Ladders Temporary ladders should only be used for short-duration tasks. As a guide, if your task would require staying up a leaning ladder or stepladder for more than 30 minutes at a time, it is recommended that you consider alternative equipment. Our engineers inspect temporary ladders in accordance with manufacturers recommendations and relevant British Standards. Ladder Ties Ladder restraint ties are typically installed discreetly adjacent to or beneath windows on the outside of buildings. When used in conjunction with a ratchet strap to restrain the ladder, they provide a safe means of securing a ladder for short-duration tasks, like window cleaning. Our regular inspection and testing will proof-load the ladder tie to check its suitability. This includes a regular visual inspection, combined with a physical pull test to determine the suitability of fixing.
