95% of the time, ladders are used for convenience rather than safety. There are often alternative safer access methods available, for example podiums, hop ups or towers.
Subsequently we have implemented a new ladder permit system on site to ensure ladders are only used as a last resort where there is no way to use a safer access system. Our permit board illustrates where ladders are being used on site, so we can monitor usage.
