Webinar: Ladder safety today: new guidance for employers

Thursday 15 July 10:30am - register now for free

The Health & Safety Executive and Ladder Association have joined forces to release two new ladder safety guidance documents. In this one-off event, they introduce the guidance and walk through the key steps to preventing ladder accidents in the workplace, including how to select (and maintain) safe equipment and ensure all workers are competent.

After the presentation, speakers from both organisations will answer your questions live.

Anyone responsible for the safety of ladder users will find this free, 90-minute session invaluable, including safety professionals, site managers, company directors and users themselves. It’s aimed at a UK audience but open to all.

Attendees will get an exclusive first look at the HSE's new ladder safety webpages and be asked to contribute their feedback before they go live to the public. They'll also receive an electronic copy of the Ladder Association's updated Code of Practice.

Your host is Gail Hounslea, Chairman of the Ladder Association. She'll introduce Paul Cook from the Health & Safety Executive who will speak about the importance of industry guidance. Gail will then be joined by fellow ladder safety experts, Don Aers, Francis Camilleri, Steve Booker and Dennis Seaton, who will make sure the session is packed full of actionable advice. Finally, we'll round off with Peter Bennett OBE, Executive Director of the Ladder Association, who will share his thoughts on preventing falls from height on a wider scale - and how each of us can play our part.
