    Provided the ladder was not supplied with the scaffold and was introduced by a 3rd party you can not be held responsible for the actions of someone else prior to handing over a scaffold.
    However until it has been handed over and accepted (signed for) by the client the scaffold company is responsible for the condition of the structure. If a ladder is accessible and access can be gained to the platform the scaffolder in charge is responsible for controlling access.. https://www.hsmsearch.com/Company-fi...om-scaffolding see link for example of failure to control access.
