Section 2-23. Design of ladders

Ladders must be adequately dimensioned and securely fastened. The steps must be slip-resistant.
Ladders must have a siderail or handrail that terminates at guard rail height over the upper level and, if necessary, be fitted with safeguards to prevent falls, for example hoops.
Long ladders must be provided with a rest landing.
When ladders function as escape routes, they must be marked so that they are clearly visible.
