How To Stay Safe Up A Ladder
Occasionally we find that a customer has taken a tumble whilst carrying out a boat repair - and usually it happened as the result of misuse of a ladder - or not using a ladder at all!
That’s why, as a valued customer, we we’d like to remind you about our safety protocols:
- Always use a ladder when working at height or attempting to board your boat when its ashore.
- Ladders used to access boats ashore must be suitable for the task, well maintained - and safely secured to the boat prior to boarding!
- When not in use, remove your ladder, lock it at a low level or secure it with a device that will prevent access to the boat.
- Do not park immediately under, or within 2 metres of your boat’s hull; working equipment should be deposited at the boat and cars returned to the car park.
