Chicago, March 16, 2020 — Join the American Ladder Institute in participating in the fourth annual National Ladder Safety Month. Every year during March, the American Ladder Institute shares tips and resources on proper ladder use and ladder safety at work and in the home. The month concludes with tips on safe ladder inspection and disposal to wrap up a thorough look at ladder safety, from the very beginning—the ladder selection process--until the end.

This year, global health and safety concerns are reaching unprecedented levels. As the escalating global impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on people’s lives develops, many individuals and families find themselves with more time at home. Along with personal health and hygiene, ALI and its partners encourage communities to remember best practices for safe ladder use as people find themselves tackling projects at home.

Everyone, from large organizations to the everyday user, can help reduce ladder accidents.
