Is this the right Ladder Safety training for you?

Ladder Safety training is designed for all industries and individuals that use ladders for example, site supervisors and managers.

However, those who use ladders are also likely to need further practical training to fully understand the best practices that will ensure their ongoing safety. For those needing further safety in training, courses such as Working at Heights, Working Safely and PPE should be completed alongside this one. For Supervisors that want to continue to enhance their skills, courses such as Introduction to Risk Assessment or Leadership Skills would make great next steps.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
