‘LA455 Safe Use of Ladders and Stepladders – a brief guide’ is a completely revised document, jointly produced by the Ladder Association and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). This replaces the Health & Safety Executive, guidance document INDG45.

This guidance is for employers on the simple, sensible precautions they should take to keep people safe when using ladders and stepladders in the workplace. This will also be useful for employees and their representatives.

This updated guidance now highlights the importance of training, and offers expanded guidance on different types of portable ladders, such as telescopic ladders and combination (or multi-purpose) ladders.
