The Ladder Association has published a book to promote safety and best practice. The free 12-page A5 publication is intended to be a handy reference for use in the office or on site. The LadderBook champions the ladder as an invaluable piece of workplace equipment, taking as its theme: 'if it's right to use a ladder, use the right ladder and get trained to use it safely'.

Dispelling many of the myths surrounding the use of ladders and stepladders, and including sections such as '10 things you need to know about ladders', it advocates training as the most vital tool to reduce falls from height. The LadderBook includes a foreword by the Health & Safety Executive, and includes a section directing readers to sources of more information, including the HSE website.
