LA455 Safe Use of Ladders and Stepladders - a brief guide

‘LA455 Safe Use of Ladders and Stepladders – a brief guide’ is the new guidance jointly produced by the Ladder Association and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Released in July 2021, the guidance replaces the HSE Guidance Document INDG455 of the same name.

This updated guidance now highlights the importance of training, and offers expanded guidance on different types of portable ladders, such as telescopic ladders and combination (or multi-purpose) ladders.
