Ladder Safety Attachments

Rail and Harness Fall Arrest System

(available for all fixed access ladders)

Rail and harness system with a shuttle that connects to a worker’s harness. The shuttle moves with the worker as they climb up or down the ladder. As soon as there is a slip or fall, the system is instantly engaged with the shuttle immediately locking into the rail.

OSHA requires that if the total length of the climb exceeds 24’, ladder safety devices are required (OSHA 1926.1053(a)(19)(i).

Landing Platform

(available for all fixed access and cage ladders)

Used for various purposes including switching from one ladder to another when the ladders are offset to go around obstructions or as a resting place in long climbs.

OSHA requires landings for climbs longer than 50’ (OSHA 1926.1053(a)(19)(iii).

Safety Post

(available for ladder models 500, 501 and 531)

Provides the climber with something to hold on to as they pull themselves through the hatch. Our safety posts are available in Safety Yellow and Galvanized finishes.


Seismic Bracket

(available for all ship ladders)

Allows for 1” of movement and is supplied if the local jurisdiction requires one. It is also typically used when the ship ladder is between two separate buildings or crosses an expansion joint.
