UK legislation relevant to the need for ladder guards

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

Places a duty on those in control of non-domestic premises to ensure that the means of access and exit are safe.

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM)

Requires a Principal Contractor to ensure that only authorised people are allowed on site and access to unauthorised workers is limited from areas where hazards may be present.

The Occupiers Liability Act 1957

Places a duty on the occupier of premises to take reasonable care to see that visitors are reasonably safe in using the premises for the purpose for which they were invited.

The Occupiers Liability Act 1984

Extends this common law duty of care to persons other than visitors, i.e., trespassers.

The Working at Height Regulations 2005

Includes requirements for the protection of workers and visitors, preventing unauthorised people from entering areas where there is a risk of falling a distance.

The Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) Regulation 7

Where the use of work equipment involves specific hazards, its use must be restricted to those designated persons given the specific task of using it and repairing it.

In order to comply with Health & Safety legislation, an employer, contractor or land owner should review and control potential hazards. With ladders, this means removing and storing them safely when not in use, if this is not viable, then specifically designed locking ladder guards with appropriate warning notices should be considered.
