Industrial Ladders In The Workplace

Industrial ladders are found in almost every workplace across the country. They are invaluable pieces of equipment when you need to reach higher items or areas safely.

Our Industrial ladders come in all different shapes and sizes. This means you can pick and choose the perfect type for your business.

Types of Industrial Ladders

You may find that a warehouse environment will benefit more from Warehouse Steps and Warehouse Picking Trolleys. This is because these make processes such as order picking and reaching items high up on racking simple and easy.

Retail shops will find those types of Industrial Ladders too cumbersome, so Kick Steps and Stools are the perfect options here. These provide convenient and safe access and help prevent injuries and accidents caused by excessive stretching.

At other times, you need your industrial ladder to be easily transportable to carry it with you on the go efficiently. Extension Ladders are perfect for this type of professional use as they are designed to be extendable and can double or triple in length from their folded state.

For a more versatile option, Combination Ladders are the way to go. These are very flexible and can be configured in multiple ways to fit for purpose in various locations.

In most cases, our Aluminium Ladders will be suitable, but we also offer Fibreglass Ladders for Electricians.

Legal Guidance

Common sense plays a large part in the safe handling of industrial ladders, but even so, there are still some legal rules to follow to ensure maximum safety of the people on and surrounding them.

The main one is the ‘Work at Height Regulations 2005’, which covers all basic aspects of how to use industrial ladders safely and sensibly.

There is no requirement for who can use industrial ladders but having instructions and understanding how to use the equipment safely is very beneficial.

Make your ladders even safer using our Safety Inspection Tags for Ladders and Scaffolding.
