Any company involved with ladders in any way can benefit from Ladder Association membership.


Join the Ladder Association

Founded in 1947, the Ladder Association is the not-for-profit lead industry body dedicated to promoting the safe use of portable ladders.

We currently have over 80 approved Ladder Association members flying the flag for ladder safety in 3 regions across the globe.

Our members include ladder manufacturers, suppliers, training centres, instructors who deliver approved Ladder Association training, and companies of all sizes who want to be part of a growing trade association and keep up-to-date with the latest industry developments.

The Ladder Association harnesses its own expertise, along with that of its member companies, to support technical excellence, safety and best practice in ladder safety across all industry.
