Ladder Safety Training Course - Target Audience

Ladders are commonly used in workplaces for many different types of tasks, yet they host numerous hazards for those that use them. Falls from height are the biggest cause of workplace fatalities in the UK. This is why ladder safety training is not only vitally important, but also required by law.

Together, the Working at Height Regulations 2015, Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, Managing Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 place obligations on employers and employees. This includes providing training so that employees have the necessary skills and knowledge to work safely with ladders, protecting themselves and others.

This is a general awareness course for employees and employers covering all aspects of ladder safety and ladder risk assessment. It is designed to satisfy the requirements of the Regulations and is based on guidance from the HSE and the Ladder Association.

Online Ladder Training - Course Objectives

This ladder safety course will help organisations meet their legal obligations and provide candidates with a thorough awareness of the dangers associated with ladder use and the control measures required to control the risks. 

After completing this course, candidates will:

  • Understand the risks associated with ladder and stepladder use.
  • Have knowledge of the regulatory framework that underpins workplace ladder use.
  • Have knowledge of safe ladder and stepladder use.
  • Understand when a ladder is safe to use and when it isn’t.
  • Have an understanding of the requirement of safety checks for ladders and ladder inspections.
  • Be aware of the considerations and control measures required to perform a ladder risk assessment.

Online Ladder Training - Course Structure

The course comprises 4 interactive modules and a final assessment. Links to recommended reading and additional resources may be provided within the training modules. These links are not mandatory and will not be tested for in the final assessment.

Ladder Training Course - Duration

It takes approximately 30 minutes to complete the course. This can be spread out over multiple sessions or completed in one. There is no time limit for completion.


All candidates must complete a multiple choice assessment after working through the training material.

CPD Certificate

The Ladder Safety Training certificate has no expiry date because there is no formally recognised period of validity for any health and safety training. The HSE recommends refresher training is carried out whenever it is felt necessary. Safety registration bodies such as CHAS, SafeContractor, ConstructionLine & SMAS and other members of the SSiP scheme recommend most re-training is done every 3 years.

All of our courses, systems and services have been registered to the internationally recognised ISO 9001:2015 quality standard. Quality Management Systems Ltd (QMS) made this prestigious award to Commodious in January 2018. This gives assurance that the training and assessment was completed with a quality registered organisation.
