New guide on ladder safety

Filed under: Latest News — EHN Team @ 3:19 pm

The Ladder Association has published an eight-page guide explaining revisions to the BS EN 131 standard for portable ladders.

The free publication provides information on how and when the changes will affect users, advice on purchasing wisely when replacing existing ladders that are damaged or unfit for further use, changes to design requirements, and details on two new classes of ladders.

Through its membership of the European standards committee for ladders, CEN TC93, the Association has had an input into the new standards, which are aimed at improving product strength, rigidity and durability, as well as enhancing safety.

Don Aers, the Association’s Technical Manager said, “The guide makes it absolutely clear that standards do not apply retrospectively and gives practical, sensible advice to businesses in adjusting their purchasing policies to take account of the new standards. It also re-emphasises that, whilst ladders may not always be the first choice when working at height, they are often a sensible and practical option for low-risk and short duration tasks.”
