Ladder safety device

Ladder-stabilising measures are aimed at preventing a ladder from slipping or tipping over whilst the user is working. In the occupational health and safety area, ladder safety devices are extremely important - but often neglected. Statistically, the number one cause of accidents in the workplace are those caused by falling off or tipping over with a ladder.

Ladders that are not securely fixed to the building can be upgraded with an additional component which can then be hooked onto the structure to offer additional stability. Our ABS LaddQuick, which is simply clamped between two ladder rungs, is a perfect example of such a safety device.

Alternatively, an additional device can be installed permanently on the building to allow a ladder to be hooked up or onto it. A good example of such a device is our ABS LaddFix.
