The work in electrical installations requires some activities to be carried out on heights, and must be carried out in a safe manner and with appropriate ergonomic conditions, by choosing specific work equipment and means of protection, to ensure optimal working conditions in safety parameters. The use of electrical insulating work equipment for temporary work on heights it is a mandatory technical and safety measure to carry out the specific activities in electrical installations, as well as to ensure the protection against electrical risks and to prevent falling from heights. The research study aimed at identifying the specific professional risks and the assessment of the technical and safety requirements for work equipment intended to be used on heights - ladders made of electrical insulating material sections. Effective management of the safety management of this work equipment is necessary to ensure a high level of safety for workers and to establish the necessary preventive measures for the use of combined ladders. The results of the study consist of identifying and establishing the specific safety requirements specific to work equipment for work on heights, ladders which have both metallic and electrical insulating material.
