    What are the requirements for ladder inspections?

    What are the requirements for ladder inspections?

    Answer:

    How oftenLadders are to be inspected “routinely” to establish that they are in good condition and fit for use. In practice, “routinely” depends on how often the ladders are being used, durability and manufacturers instructions. Usually, this would be 6 monthly for portable ladders and annually for fixed ladders.

    What to check: Each ladder has different inspection and maintenance requirements which vary by product and brand. For example, a portable ladder has a 36 point checklist; an attic ladder has 18 elements to inspect and maintenance is required on hinges and springs.
