Inspecting your Ladders – Who are we and why should I use your services ?

We are an established UK manufacturer of high quality ladders, steps and work platforms. For over 30 years we have been designing and manufacturing a comprehensive range of products together with providing bespoke custom made access solutions. We carry with us a wealth of experience and knowledge.

It is a legal duty to ensure that ladders are suitable and safe for work and to conduct inspections of them as required. Aside from the usual pre-use checks , more detailed examination is required.

Under the PUWER Regulations Ladders are work equipment and as such, should have an up-to-date record of detailed visual inspections carried out regularly by a competent person.

This requires that equipment provided for use at work is: suitable for the intended use, safe for use, maintained in a safe condition and inspected to ensure it is correctly installed and does not subsequently deteriorate.

We ask you to send us a list of items to be inspected together with imagery, this allows us to send you a quotation.

For large fleets of equipment we ask that the customer gathers it together in one central location where possible.

What we provide

We attend site, carry out a general appraisal, thereafter we identify and tag all items that are deemed to require inspection.

Each item will then be thoroughly inspected, the following items are given as examples of what we look at-

  1. General condition, clean & dry, free from paint (can hide defects), oil mud etc.
  2. An indication of compliance to a recognised Product Standard suitable for use in the workplace.
  3. Check for structural degradation and cracks or dents.
  4. Security and integrity of rung/treads.
  5. Examination of any other damage that might affect structural integrity.
  6. Security of guide brackets, locking catches, retaining mechanism etc.
  7. Close examination of foot pads/contact surfaces.

A full written report will be provided in electronic .pdf format.
Any observations or further relevant information will be included in the report.

How often does a detailed inspection need to be carried out ?

Detailed Inspections are dependant on frequency of use, the below is our recommendation but is subject to revision if items are being used in an onerous environment where we might recommend more frequent inspection.

Daily Use – Every Month
Weekly Use – Every 3 Months
Monthly Use – Every 12 months

We will automatically contact you when the next inspection is due.
