2. Use the ladder correctly.

Wibe Ladders - Global

The by far most common causes for accidents when using ladders is that the ladder falls over sideways or that the base slides out from the wall while the top slides downwards.

Important factors to consider in order to avoid these accidents, and others, are the positioning of the ladder, bracing or anchoring the ladder and the condition of the ground.

At Wibe Ladders we see it as our responsibility to create safer ladders and therefore we have since February 2006 delivered ladders with stabilizers to all professional ladders, and support legs for all standing ladders, which according to Swedish Work Environment Authority shall be braced for professional use.

For reasons of space during transport and storage the stabilizers and supporting legs are taped on the ladder/standing ladder. Installation of stabilizers and supporting legs takes a maximum of 5 minutes for the end customer to complete.

These ladder instructions are in accordance with EN 131-4:2007.
