Securing a ladder

Staying safe on a ladder.

Securing a ladder


Using an effective stability device and securing your ladder is imperative to safeguard the ladder user.  Ladders can be secured by either strapping the ladder to a suitable secure point and/or use an effective ladder stability/anti-slip device (footing is the last resort and should be avoided). By securing the ladder safely helps to ensure that the ladder feet cannot move or slip and therefore the ladder and its operator stays safe.


Ladder stabiliser/ ladder anti-slip devices;


When buying a ladder stabiliser/anti-slip device, think about the worst type of surface and conditions you will come across. For example, whether you will be using that ladder indoors or outdoors, or whether the ground will be wet, muddy or icy.  Only buy a ladder and associated stability device that will be suitable for your required surfaces.
