Covered in this course

The Ladder Safety Training course is broken down into 4 sections.

1) Ladder Selection

This section covers the first of the four Ladder Safety Steps. We look at what you need to consider when you’re selecting a ladder - including the BSI Kitemark, and the ladder’s size, material and duty rating.

Section 1 of our Ladder Safety Training looks at ladder selection.

2) Ladder Pre-Check

For the second step, we look at how you can conduct a Pre-check correctly on stepladders and non-self-supporting ladders (including extension ladders). We also demonstrate how to find and mark a ladder’s Balance Point.

Checking stiles, labels, rungs and feet on a ladder as part of Ladder Safety Training.

3) Ladder Setup

Here, we take you through the setup process. We provide a ‘Low Shoulder Carry’ and ‘1:4 Ratio’ demonstrations, we explain the setup “do’s and don'ts” for all ladders, and we also include how to extend and set up an extension ladder.

Section three of our Ladder Safety Training looks at the ladder set-up process.

4) Ladder Use

This section gives you concise practical steps for using a stepladder, a single ladder and an extension ladder. We discuss Ladder Etiquette and provide a bullet list of how to lower a ladder safely. There are also additional resources on Ladder Maintenance and Storage for wooden, fibreglass and aluminium ladders.

Our Ladder Safety Training concludes with safe ladder use and etiquette.

Ladder Safety Certificate

Each of our courses ends with a multiple choice test to measure your knowledge of the material.

This Ladder Safety Training course concludes with a 20 question multiple choice test with a printable certificate. In addition, brief in-course questionnaires guide the user through the sections of the training and are designed to reinforce learning and ensure maximum user engagement throughout.

As well as printable user certificates, training progress and results are all stored centrally in your LMS (Learning Management System) and can be accessed anytime to reprint certificates, check and set pass marks and act as proof of a commitment to ongoing legal compliance.

What does my certificate include?

Your Ladder Safety Certificate includes your name, company name (if applicable), name of course taken, pass percentage, date of completion, expiry date and stamps of approval or accreditations by recognised authorities.

Good course but not for office staff
at

Lesley and I have tried out the ladders course. I thought it was very good, but agree with Lesley that it wouldn’t be immediately suitable for all our office staff. Our office staff really have just step-ladders, step stools and low platforms (like decorators use). Of those items, the course only covers step-ladders. It does cover ladders and extension ladders in detail, but that is not relevant to office staff really. We have installation teams that do use ladders but they are already trained. It was a useful exercise to review the course anyway.

Excellent training provision.
at

This course provided very clear and concise instruction that could be easily followed by office personnel. There is also the benefit of raised awareness when using ladders in a home situation. The videos were well presented and provided the opportunity for "re-play." The course has been clearly thought out for the benefit of a broad spectrum of users. Thank you.
