Working At Height – A Hazardous Occupation
Did you know that the rules for Ladders are changing? Apparently the changes are being implemented to improve the safety of ladders. The trade ladder had the Euro Norme (EN) of 131. Industrial and Domestic ladder would have their own standards such as BS1129 and BS2037 Class 3. For the same ladder type but for Industrial purposes you’d have Class 1. The changes have gotten rid of the differences and put them all under the same standard which is BS EN131. Further details of the changes can be seen on our Safety Bulletin. Click here for the link.
