Ladder Exchange offers discounted ladders for old
The Ladder Exchange is run by The Ladder Association in conjunction with manufacturers and suppliers across the country. The scheme is open to all businesses and workplaces until December 31 2015.

Ladder users are asked to check their ladder against a checklist at, and if it fails to meet the criteria to then take it to a Ladder Exchange Partner. They will be able to buy a replacement at a discounted price while the old product will be kept for safe disposal.

Slingsby Group sales and marketing director Lee Wright explained: "We've been involved with the Ladder Exchange scheme for several years and it continually proves popular with all types of businesses and organisations.

"It's estimated that there are around 2m ladders in use every day in the UK, and falls from height remain a major cause of workplace accidents and fatalities. These accidents can affect all types of workers, from those who spend all day working at height through to someone who might just occasionally change a light bulb.

"There's no excuse for using a damaged or unsafe ladder, and this scheme makes a huge difference in ridding workplaces of them by offering discounts on new ladders when they are exchanged for old and defective ones."

This year's Ladder Exchange will again feature The Ladder Association's popular competition Idiots on Ladders, which invites people to submit pictures shaming people who use ladders recklessly or dangerously.
