How Often should ladders be inspected?
Ladders, either portable or fixed need to be inspected regularly to ensure they are in safe condition. It is reccomended that each time any ladder is used it should undergo pre-checks to check for damages and obvious issues that will affect the performance and safety of the ladder. More detailed inspections should be carried out every 3 to 6 months and must be done so by a competent person. Competency is difficult to prove, and should you want someone internally to inspect your ladders it's reccomended they carry out Inspection Training.
What Happens Should My Ladders Fail An Inspection?
Should your ladders have damages and defects and are labelled as unsafe by our ladder inspector we will provide you the paperwork to inform you why this decision has been made, the ladder will also be attached with a do not use label. Depending on the fault you can either source replacement parts or have to replace the ladder. We can provide the replacements for you or you can source this as you wish.
