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.

I actually can't remember the last time we had a 'fall from height' incident.
