Following the introduction of Work at Height regulations there has been much confusion as to whether Ladders can still be used as a safe form of access. Of course they can but there are certain restrictions that apply, for example a ladder should not be worked on in one position for more than 30 minutes and there must always be 3 points of contact. This comes down to the risk assessment for the job in hand. Is a ladder the safest method to gain access to the job or would a tower or work platform be more suitable. To summarise, Ladders are usually fine for short term access and quick maintenance jobs , or where there is absolutely no safer means of access.
