Handrail, Walkway & Ladders | Ladders, Walkways & Fixed Gantries
Fixed Access Ladders, Walkways, Stairs and Fixed Gantries require regular testing and inspection. This must be carried out by a competent person and the findings of this inspection must be recorded.
Generally formed from steel or aluminum they provide access to places of work, both internally and externally, such as roof tops, plant, silos and the like. Wherever they are located, it is vital to ensure the safety of workers who use them.
As part of the process, our engineers inspect ladders, walkways, stairs or fixed gantries, ensuring the installation is compliant with current legislation, checking for items that may present an obvious hazard, such as slips, trips, falls, impact damage etc. They will also check that all fixings are secure, that all moving parts operate correctly, for example self closing gates at the head of a ladder. This provides customers with complete peace of mind that their ladders, walkways and fixed gantries are fully compliant and that safety is being maximised.
