Every year in the United Kingdom, an average of 14 deaths and 1200 major injuries are as a result of falls from a ladder.
A fall from a ladder accounts for a third of all reported fall from height incidents in the workplace, many of which could be prevented with basic training, guidance, a ladder inspection checklist and/or safety precautions. Every ladder should be checked using an inspection checklist prior to use for any faults or general wear and tear.
Good to Go Safety enables a tag to be attached to a ladder and used in conjunction with a ladder inspections checklist to ensure essential pre-use inspections are carried out. This can help reduce the risk of a faulty ladder resulting in a fall from height. This system eradicates the assumption that the ladder is safe to use and enforces an inspections procedure to be completed prior to use providing compliance with PUWER, INDG402, WAHR & HSE regulations and in line with industry best practice. The tag is designed to fit on most industrial ladder (BS EN 131, BS 2037 Class 1, or BS 1129 ladder or stepladders) and we recommend positioning it at eye level near the grip point on the stiles for maximum visibility. A quick, easy to use inspection checklist system ensures that key safety checks are carried out prior to use. Once completed the inspection checklist provides a clear visual indication of the ladder’s status - clearly identifying when a ladder is ‘Good to Go’ and importantly when it is not safe to use.
