Important information regarding the latest HSE Safety Bulletin (No. CON1 - 2018) targeting the construction industry and scaffolding companies and suppliers:
Security of a construction site is vital. Falls from height following unauthorised access frequently involve children and can result in fatal injuries. Ladders need to be secured with a suitable ladder guard to make them unclimbable. Suitable ladder guards should meet safety criteria including the following:
 
  • They must be padlocked in place 
  • They must make each rung unusable (no more than 50mm of rung should be exposed when the guard is pushed as far to the side as possible.
  • They should cover at least 6 rungs

 Figure 1. Shows the comparison between a ladder guard that is not wide enough for the ladder it is fitted to. Small feet can still climb the exposed rungs and the guard could slide even further to one side.
 
Narrow ladder guards are only suitable for narrow ladders. 

 Figure 1. 

The LFI Ladder Guards are the ideal deterrent against the unauthorised use of site ladders.  We now manufacture a ladder guard for the pole ladder also and both meet the HSE safety criteria:


  • The TuffSteel ladder guard measures 1860mm long by 315mm wide (Code M7LG04)
  • The Pole Ladder Guard measures 1860mm long by 270mm wide (Code M7LG03)
  • Weight 4.5kg
 


  •  Quickly locks into place on the ladder using the padlock supplied
  • Made from 12mm aluminium sheet
