Training for qualified ladder and stepladder users

Training on ladders, stepladders, small and mobile scaffolds

Climb safely! Anyone who works at heights has to trust their occupational safety to access technology to some extent. This is why perfect functionality and proper condition for ladders, steps, and scaffolding is anchored in law:

Expertise in accordance with the Operating Safety Ordinance



Training for skilled persons on ladders and steps, small and mobile scaffolds

Ladder inspections by skilled persons

Every company has to ensure that a qualified and skilled person regularly checks the access technology solutions for proper condition, depending on the working environment. If, for instance, ladders are under heavy loads on a daily basis, this can mean that the check needs to be carried out on a daily basis as well. Expert knowledge must be certified through a seminar.

The Operating Safety Ordinance requires that companies regularly inspect work materials such as ladders and scaffolding to ensure they are in proper condition.

The euroline Academy trains employees from industry, trades, and agencies to become “Persons qualified for ladders, steps, small and mobile scaffolds”.
