Ladder Inspections

Lift us up where we belong


NIS has a team of ladder inspectors trained by the manufacturers to inspect, and test fibreglass and wooden ladders. Ladder inspections are done both at NIS and also on site (subject to volumes) and are asset managed in exactly the same way as instrumentation or plant. The ladders are tagged with a permanent NIDENT, and coded onto the asset management system.

We can also undertake repairs to ladders, enabling an unsafe ladder to be re-used, simply by adding a new stay tie rope! As the ladder is logged onto our systems the operator can view exactly what ladders are on the system, what state of test they are in, even find a longer ladder for a particular job to borrow from a fellow colleague!
