The 2005 Work at Height Regulations recognises ladders as a sensible and practical option for low risk, short duration tasks. They can be used in areas where there are existing workplace features which cannot be altered, and that prevent the use of alternative access equipment. They are also recognised as a convenient way to reach workplaces at a height. It is important that you always use the correct type of ladder for the job or area and that you know how to use the ladder properly. Always ensure that any work at height is properly planned, supervised and carried out by a competent person.
