PREMISES & MAINTENANCE

Steps & Ladders

Working at height safety

 Under existing regulations and in accordance with WAHR, duties are placed 

on employers, self employed and employees, where possible, to put in 

place arrangements for:

•  Eliminating or minimising risks from work at height

•  Organising and planning work at height

•  Selecting suitable equipment to perform work at height

When selecting suitable work equipment you need to take into account the 

principles of Risk Assessment as required under the Health and Safety at 

Work regulations.

The UK has three categories of ladder and stepladder strength

Industrial Duty (Class 1) ladders are designed for a Maximum Static 

Vertical Load of 175kg (27.5 stones).  This will sometimes be referred to as 

‘safe working load’.

Trade Duty (previously Class 2, but now EN131) ladders are designed 

for a Maximum Static Vertical Load of 150kg (23.5 stones) 

Domestic Duty (Class 3) ladders are designed for a Maximum Static 

Vertical Load of 125kg (19.5 stones)

Where work at height risks cannot be eliminated, then the following 

considerations should be taken into account

•  What is it to be used for?

•  Type of ladder required

•  Duration of the work

•  Preventative measures of the consequence of falls

•  Wear and tear of the equipment

•  Other suitable access equipment

•  Frequency of access

•  Training and abilities of users

•  Workplace, ground and site conditions

•  Access and egress

•  External factors such as weather, vandalism and electrical safety

•  Additional safety equipment that may be required ie. personal protective 

equipment
