At Spiers Engineering Safety, we have put together a FREE comprehensive fixed ladder inspection checklist to help you stay compliant with health and safety regulations.
When working at height, it is paramount all your operations are safe and meet the requirements of Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998. With our thorough ladder inspection checklist, you can keep on top of your PUWER inspections.
Our experienced PUWER inspection engineers have created the ultimate checklist for ensuring your fixed ladders are safe to use within your workplace. This checklist is applicable to fixed ladders where they are a part of the safe access concept for stationary work equipment/machinery powered and non powered. ‘Fixed’ means they are mounted in such a way that tools are needed for their removal or destruction of the joining means (i.e. welded). This checklist also applies when the main function of the fixed ladder is to provide a safe access concept to a building or civil construction where the machine/equipment is located e.g. roof access to extraction systems. Where there is no local regulation or applicable standard, then our free fixed ladder checklist may be used for means of access which are similar to the examples given above. This checklist is not applicable to powered means of access such as lifts, escalators, or other devices specially designed to lift persons between two levels.
Receive detailed, expert guidance on the questions you need to be asking when you assess your means of access. From generalised questions to those that cover specialised circumstances, our checklist walks you through the considerations you need to be investigating. From suitability and current condition to training and conformity to regulations and requirements.
