Safe Use of Ladders and Steps

WHY TAKE THIS COURSE?

The course is for anyone who needs an understanding of the need for safe use of ladders and steps. This course will train the operative to a level of competence such as to carry out ladder inspections and to create a safe system of work when dealing with ladders and steps.

Because everyone thinks they know how to use a ladder, they laugh whenever someone falls from one. And the untold horror stories of people trying to place ladders at ridiculous angles without support and then trying to climb along the bottom should best be left unsaid. Needless to say, with the surprising number of accidents and countless Youtube and Facebook videos, it's fairly clear that people might need a few pointers. So, with this in mind, 4safety's ladder and steps course will train you to a level of competence that means you can be sure that you are doing it right, and that when others are making the mistakes you can correct them, and create a safe system of work for all.

Whether you're a complete beginner or an experienced operator looking to refresh your skills, we'll ensure the course is suitable, useful and rewarding.

Course Information

It's important that the training is enjoyable, relevant and useful. That's why all of our courses are tailored to your needs. The following information is for general guidance, and we are happy to discuss your content, duration, location, certification and cost requirements.

TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT

The course is delivered through a combination of classroom-based tutorials and practical exercises. You will be assessed through theory and practical tests. All of our trainers are accredited.

4safety can train/assess up to three experienced candidates in one day for most equipment/machine courses. If they are not experienced then this will take longer depending on the complexity of the machine, the number of candidates and their aptitude for operating the equipment. The non-equipment based courses can normally accommodate 6 candidates depending on the course and level of experience.

As with all of our courses, we ask if the candidates can read and understand English. We can provide a translator for the entire course or just for the theory if necessary, but there is an extra charge and we need to know this at the booking stage.
