Meet the Newly Crowned Idiots on Ladders! [Photo Gallery]

Feb. 1, 2016
The "winners" of the Ladder Exchange 2015 Idiots on Ladders competition have been announced. These are the unsafe acts that were chosen for recognition.

The Ladder Exchange 2015 Idiots on Ladders competition has come to an end and the “winners” have been announced. Winners were chosen through social media, with the biggest idiot receiving 81 "likes" and shares.

The Ladder Association is the trade body responsible for advancing safety and best practices in the ladder industry, and it oversees the delivery of national training in the UK. Over the course of the past few months, what the organizations calls “a worrying amount of submissions of idiotic ladder use” was sent in for the public to vote on by liking and sharing on Facebook and Twitter.

While only one ladder user could be named “The Biggest Idiot on a Ladder 2015,” he had lots of company, as these photos prove.

Idiots on Ladders shows the importance of training and competence, while the Ladder Exchange itself helps people ensure they are using safe equipment by allowing people and businesses to trade in ladders – regardless of their condition – for new ones at a discount.
