Free ladder safety webinar
The Ladder Association and Health & Safety Executive (HSE) have joined forces to release two new ladder safety guidance documents.
It is being launched at a special online event on Thursday 15 July at 10:30am (UK time), which is free to attend.
As well as exclusive first access to the guidance, attendees will learn about the key steps to preventing ladder accidents in the workplace, including how to select (and maintain) safe equipment and ensure all workers are competent.
The event host is Gail Hounslea, chairman of the Ladder Association and managing director of Ladderstore.
Gail will introduce Paul Cook, who has undertaken a range of senior policy and communications roles with the Health & Safety Executive since 2009 and is currently head of web services, content and design. Paul will use real life examples to highlight the leading causes of ladder falls, the importance of industry guidance in preventing these accidents and explain the recent changes.
Attendees will then hear from ladder safety experts Don Aers (technical director, Ladder Association), Francis Camilleri (director, TB Davies), Steve Booker (group managing director, Kentec Training) and Dennis Seaton (regional training manager, HSS Training).
Afterwards, all speakers will be on hand to answer audience questions live.
Attendees will receive a CPD certificate and recording of the event.
