Thanks Michael, yes I have seen it. The laws in Oz actually allow ladders as work platforms for light work only, work that may be performed with one hand because 3 points of contact must be maintained at all times and the body must remained within the ladder stringers. Additionally, ladders must be secured top and bottom, plus no one may ascend further than the third topmost rung of a step ladder. So, Safe T Climb, fine thing that it is, may not be used. As I said earlier my company goes further than the law and bans all ladder use, except for acces (and in most cases we use scaffold) or where there is no practical alternative. I actually can't remember the last time we had a 'fall from height' incident.
