Before using a step ladder - or any other type of ladder, for that matter - it's important to carry out a thorough risk assessment. This will help you to determine whether a step ladder is actually the safest and most suitable solution for the task at hand.
Before using a step ladder, you need to ensure that it is suitable and safe to use. If it isn’t and you decide to use it anyway, there could be some serious consequences in relation to your health and safety. To avoid any unwanted problems below is a step ladder inspection checklist that you can follow to ensure that your step ladder is safe to use. Please read each step carefully and fill in the relevant information where needed.
Step ladders should be checked briefly before every use and formally inspected every 6 months (if used once a week or more) or 12 months (if used less than once a week) using this checklist.
