Overview Product Details What is this standard about? It specifies minimum requirements that also apply when the same means of access is required as the part of the building or civil construction e. Furthermore, three-point contact needs to be maintained except for very brief periods eg starting a screw , heavy objects should not be carried, leaning ladders should be secured and, if stepladders are used and side loads are imposed, then the stepladder should be secured. Clause 4 of Part 1 lists the most significant hazards to consider when determining the type and location of the means of access. If the designer chooses to verify the safety requirements by calculation, the information relating to the test methods must be taken into account so that the two verification methods are comparable.
