How do I know whether to use walkway, ladders, steps or stairs for access and fall protection?

Ladders, steps, stairs and walkways are all covered by Australian Standard AS/NZS 1657:2018.

When designing roof access and fall protection systems these Standards must be adhered to ensure compliance.

Questions such as how often will the system be accessed and what type of incline is it to be installed on determine selection of equipment.

Our video gives details of what type of fall protection is required depending the degree of slope.

For more information read “When are ladders, steps and stairs required”.
