The British Ladder Manufactures Association was formed by the leading ladder manufacturers in 1947. Since then they have played an integral roles with promoting high stands of design and manufacture as well as advances in best practise. After the inception of the Working at Height Regulations in 2005, a large number of new initiatives were launched by the ladder association to aid compliance and safe working practise.
The Ladder Association training scheme equips delegates with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to use ladders legally and safely.
Ladder safety training addresses issues raised by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Working at Height Regulations 2005. Under the regulations every person in the chain up to and including the user has a duty of care both to themselves and others to know and understand the practical implications of working at height. Demonstration of competence is a key requirement to the Regulations and successful complete of a ladder safety course provides proof of such competence.
