When working professionally with ladders you usually need to follow some safety guidelines and regulations. These vary from country to country and are primarily governed by national or local working regulations or working laws. Our safety guide covers the basics of what you need to know about safe work on ladders, although additional requirements may apply.
These rules apply to mobile ladders, not ladders that are permanently fix on walls and roofs.
If you are using your own ladder at home, there are generally no rules that apply to the use of it but we recommend that you follow the same rules that apply to professionals. Those rules are there to keep you safe. Our ladder safety guide is a great place to start.
If you are hiring a professional craftsman for work in your home, the situation might be a bit different. If you lend them your products you may be responsible for making sure it is safe and approved. This certainly applies to scaffolding, check for national rules and regulations.
For retailers the most important thing to know and to follow is that in most European countries, the law requires that all ladders sold are type approved. As long as you are selling Wibe Ladders that’s nothing you need to give much consideration. We make sure our products always fulfil the legal requirements.
