Ladder Association Training Course
"On average 12 people a year die at work falling from ladders and over 1200 suffer major injuries. Ladders remain the most common agent involved and account for more than a quarter of all falls from height."
Under the Health & Safety at Work 1974 and Work at Height 2005 regulations, every person in the chain leading up to, and including, the final user, has a duty of care to both themselves and others to know and understand the practical implications of working safely at height.
As an approved member and training centre of the Ladder Association (LMA) Lyte are able to offer the Ladder Safety Course as devised and approved by the LMA . The course objectives aim to enable delegates to:
- Select appropriate work at height equipment for a task
- Assess and determine when it is appropriate to use ladders and stepladders
- Correctly locate and safely use ladders and stepladders
- Inspect ladders and stepladders for damage
And ensure delegates have an understanding of:
- Legislation and regulations affecting work at height
- Product standards and classifications for ladders and stepladders
- Hazards affecting the use of ladders and stepladders
Upon successful completion every delegate receives a certificate and Ladder Association photo card as objective proof of competence.
