Ladder & Steps Training
All ladder training courses are operated and run by The Training Societi in partnership with SafetyLiftinGear
Ladders may look simple, and many operators think that common sense will get them by – but statistically the inappropriate or incorrect use of ladders and stepladders have contributed to an average of 14 deaths and 1200 major injuries a year in the UK, and thousands of pounds worth of fines for companies just relying on ‘common sense alone’. Ladder training drastically reduces the risk of injury as it teaches the participant how to stay safe when working with ladders.
