Stepladders are a sensible and practical option for low level access work which is low-risk and of short duration.

At Direct Hire and Sales we have a range of Class 1 (Industrial) BS2037 Stepladders from 5 tread to 14 tread available to hire across our network of Branches in the UK.

The Health and Safety Executive leaflet INDG-455 advises that when using a Stepladder to "only carry light materials and tools" and not "to stand and work on the top three steps (including a step forming the very top of the Stepladder) unless there is a suitable handhold".

The Stepladder was invented by John Basely in 1862, he had the idea to put hinges on a Ladder allowing it to be folded away when not in use and received the first U.S. patent issued for a safety Stepladder. Stepladders were named this because they resembled steps rather than traditional straight Ladders, they are also called A-frames.
