If you need to work at height, the correct aluminium ladders and aluminium walkways can create a platform that does not leave you at risk of overbalancing or falling.
Aluminium walkways have lots of applications, from acting as walkovers on fragile roofs, to creating a level surface on pitched and other uneven roofs.
Meanwhile, aluminium ladders give you a good choice of safety ladders, so that you can climb to the required altitude without the risk of falling and sustaining a major injury.
In one incident in August 2014, a 55-year-old man was removing electrical cabling at the top of a ladder, which required him to use both hands to try and saw through a pipe.
He overbalanced and fell, landing 3.6 metres down on the floor, and sustained eight broken ribs, a broken finger, and lacerations to his shin, knee, elbow and head.
HSE inspector John Glynn said: “The company failed to effectively organise and plan the work, gave them an inadequate ladder to use rather than a more suitable aluminium tower, and failed to appropriately supervise and monitor what was going on.”
