    Default CSCS Question

    Renewed my touch screen today and one of the working at height questions was...........

    Q. What is the maximum height a pole ladder can be between lifts?

    A.1 5m
    A.2 3m
    A.3 No Maximum
    A.4 9m

    Be interested to see what you guys would have put for this!

    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 !
    I'd Rather have a bottle in front of me , than a frontal labotomy !

    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.

    If you dont value your time, neither will others. Stop giving away your time and talents. Value what you know and charge for it...

    in the CITB publication Health, Safety and environment test for managers and professionals 'GT 200/12, question 14.20 is, and I quote -

    "when using ladders for access what is the maximum vertical distance between landings?"

    A. 5m
    B. there is no maximum
    C. 9m
    D. 30m

    The answer being given is C. 9m

    (10 mins later) - Just read the entire book again and cant find anything else relating to the subject.

    There should be an extra answer to the question

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