ARTICLE
For sites still using vertical access ladders, an example of effectiveprevention of unauthorised access has been demonstrated by Tarmac Northern’s Concrete & Mortar Yorkshire.

• where there is no access to the rear of the ladder, a sheet steel door, vertical hinged, is closed across the face of the ladder and padlocked
• where there is access to the rear, a sheet steel housing is attached to the
rear of the ladder, in addition to the steel door at the front.
