New ladder standards for working at heights

The product standards for portable ladders are changing in 2018. BS EN 131 which covers all types of portable ladders has been substantially revised. The changes that come with this revision will help improve the safety of ladders and make buying the right ladder simpler.

These changes will affect everyone involved with ladders, from users and specifiers to suppliers and health & safety professionals.

The document below produced by the Ladder Association will help explain the chages and how they will effect those who work at heights.

If any of our staff or customers would like to discuss the impact of this change in detail, Dave Ritchie, Intelect’s Health & Safety Manger, would be happy to answer your questions.
