References to Ladder Safety that may be of value

Hazard Management can sometimes include just looking at your use of basic equipment, and how  safety applies to the use of ladders. This excellent article on ladder safety is worth referring to if you use ladders in your workplace. In New Zealand the DoL issued an construction bulletin of ladder use, and while old (1998) the points are still valid.

Hazard Management techniques can analyse a workplace in a number of ways e.g. process, task, location. If the use of ladders is not obvious in your workplace, reviewing the process may discover that you do need a device to climb, and that a ladder may be required. You will then need to consider the safety points detailed in the safety ladder links on this page.
