Ladder accidents are extremely common even though they are preventable. Many employers require their staff to use ladders but often, they don’t know how to use them safely.

The course will explore how employers and employees can reduce and control the risks associated with using ladders and will increase skills and knowledge of the different types of ladders available.

This course is for employers and employees who would benefit from up-to-date knowledge and skills around ladder safety.
