Badly worded question. Shouldn't it say maximum height before a landing?

2.0m is standard un designed lift height and the ladder should project 1 m past the platform so I'd go for 3m . 9m is how long a ladder can be without a rest, same on a tower crane that's why those crane drivers are so fat !

Your guidance says 1.05m so shouldn't the answer be 3.05 Not being pedantic.

External ladders should not exceed a maximum of two lifts or 4.7mts, if your base is 2.7 max and a 2mt lift above that. All other ladders should be internal, again max of two lifts. Thats why all ladders are now 6mts, i havn't used a 9mt pole ladder in the last 10yrs or so.

There should be an extra answer to the question

E) The access should be risk assessed for the fat asthmatic brickie
