In light of the changes by the European requiring the latest EN 131 to be adopted for industrial and commercial uses, and this would impact all ladders over 3m that qualify as leaning ladders; the Workplace Safety & Health Council has adopted the SS EN 131 as an Approved of Practice (ACOP) in Singapore. This webinar aims to assist ladder users, occupiers, employers, distributors and importers of ladders to better understand the requirements prescribed in the SS EN131.

Another area to address is the edge protection systems. It is important to ensure your edge protection system meets the highest standards of safety and performance, and adheres to the SS EN 13373, which has been approved as an ACOP in Singapore. This session provides an overview of the standard to increase the industry awareness with the standard. It applies to edge protection systems for flat and inclined surfaces and specifies the requirements for three classes of temporary edge protection. Join the webinar to hear from our TÜV SÜD’s Expert and other invited industry speakers.
