Ladder Inspection Checklist (Pad of 30)
A simple procedure to help organisations conduct a pre-use inspection of ladders to ensure that they are safe for use.
The ladder inspection pad enables an organisation to work through a duplicate checklist and carry out an inspection of their ladders, ensuring that they are safe for use. The top copy of the checklist is displayed on the ladder to indicate its safety. The duplicate copy remains fast in the pad as evidence that the inspection has taken place in the event of an HSE investigation.
When conducting a ladder inspection, the user can simply work down the inspection checklist, checking the safety of each component in turn. This simple procedure helps you to comply with HSE guidance as well as the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 that state that all work equipment provided to employees must be safe to do the job for which it is intended.
Once the inspection is complete, assuming that safety has been established, the inspection certificate can be placed inside a safety status indicator on the ladder, ensuring that every employee can clearly see that it is safe to use. Failing ladders can be similarly identified and taken out of service.
The duplicate copy of the certificate remains inside the inspection pad and can be used as evidence of inspections should you ever need to produce this for the HSE.
Each pad allows you to perform 30 inspections on a piece of equipment and is suitable for use with our ladder paddle kit.
