An average of 14 fatalities and 1200 serious injuries are as a result of a fall from a ladder every year in the United Kingdom.
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, ladder inspections checklist and/or safety precautions. Every ladder should be checked using a ladder inspections 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 ladder inspections are carried out. Using a ladder inspection checklist helps to reduce the risk of a faulty ladder being used resulting in a fall from height. This system eradicates the assumption that the ladder is safe to use and enforces a ladder inspections checklist to be completed prior to use providing compliance with PUWER, INDG402, WAHR & HSE regulations and in line with industry best practice. The status 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 ladder inspections checklist system ensures that key safety checks are carried out prior to use. Once completed the ladder inspections 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.
