    If you ban ladders you take away a lot of people's buisness. If you ban ladders are you also going to ban ladders from all households. Think your going a bit over the top really. Not everyone can afford wfp. I know people who have used ladders and been trad for years & never fallen off. Accidents happen. Shall we ban cars coz someone got run over!!!. I've never heard anybody on here call wfp stupid. I'm a trader but I think wfp is a great bit of kit so I don't know where you read that. Certainly not on here. There's a lot of people out there that are traders & you would take away there buisness just like that. I agree you get some idiots but most people like myself think of saftey a lot & I do everything I can to stay safe. You are entitled to your opionon & I respect that but I think what you wrote needed a bit of thought. Don't rob people of there living. Educate them.

    ladders are not the problem, ladder are 100% safe, if used the right way and by the right perosn. ladders are only a problem when people mis-use them. i dont think they should be banned. but i think everyone that uses a ladder has to be trained on them and carry a card to say that they have been traind

    That's right. As I said educate them. Problem is once you start on 1 you have to do everybody including householders. I bet at least 50./' of householders own a ladder.

    It's not ladders that are unsafe or they wouldn't sell them it's users who don't know how to use them correctly that make working on them unsafe lack of knowledge and understanding.
