The Work at Height Regulations (WAHR) 2005 combine all previous requirements on work at height into one set of fairly specific regulations. In order to use ladders safely at work and comply with the current legislation a fairly straightforward process has to be followed. One element of that process is that regular inspections of all work at height equipment have to be conducted by a competent person. As a Ladder Log customer you have access to free ladder inspection checklists. Once completed you simply update the details on the Ladder Log Safety Inspection Tag attached to your ladder and file the completed checklist. You can use our A4 Ladder Register and Inspection Summary folder to organise your inspections, or simply download the free documents to create your own register.
Ladder Log Inspection Tag Holders comply with the Ladder Association's guidance about labelling your ladders and attaching inspection tags and holders. Ladder Log Holders are can be attached using a variety of methods but we recommend the use of nylon ties which we provide free with every order.
- Ladder Log Tag Holders are better because:
- Attaching a Ladder Log Holders to your ladder does not weaken it.
- Ladder Log Holders are clear so you can inspect the ladder behind. by simply pulling out the inspection tag*
- Ladder Log Holders don't require the invasive modification. of the ladder e.g. drilling, screwing or riveting**
- *It is important to note that simply sticking a label on a ladder, or attaching a tag holder that you cannot see through will obscure a part of the ladder. Any cracks or defects that occur in this section may be obscured and missed in the inspection process.
- **The Ladder Association now recommends that tag holders should not be used that require the invasive modification of the ladder e.g. drilling, screwing or riveting or that in any way might weaken the ladder or hide defects.
