2011 Ladder Exchange to boost ladder safety in the workplace


The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE’s) Ladder Exchange Initiative 2011 will commence next month on 1st September and will run for 3 months, ending at close of business on 30th November.

For this year’s initiative, HSE have provided free promotional material including posters and postcards which are available to download by clicking on this link.


 

HSE has facilitated the Ladder Exchange since its introduction four years ago, in 2007, over which period more than 8,000 dodgy ladders have been removed from the workplace as a direct result. This initiative provides UK businesses with an easy and simple way to replace broken, damaged or bent ladders and trade them in for safe new ones. A number of HSE partners will be offering discounted prices on new ladders when exchanging for their 'dodgy' ones and some are also offering free inspections of their existing ladders.
