Many accidents occur when ladders are set up or used incorrectly. Maybe the ladder is not set up at the correct angle, maybe the surface is not stable and even, maybe the ladder is damaged. The possibilities are many and the risk is great. Accident statistics from The Danish Working Environment Authority how that work accidents with falls from ladders occur on a daily basis.
As with ladders, serious accidents occur with falls from scaffoldings – often in connection with the removal of a railing, which is then no re-established. It is important that you know the rules for the correct erection of scaffoldings. Once the erector of the scaffolding has put a green approval sign on the scaffolding, it is your responsibility that the scaffolding is safe and complies with the rules.
MELAU – Arbejdsmiljø can help you teach your employees the scaffolding rules and correct erection and use of ladders. In addition, we can help you check used scaffoldings for faults and defects.
