National Ladder Safety Month

 

 

National Ladder Safety Month | March 2019

Every step matters: From step stools to extension ladders, make sure you're putting the right foot forward.

Every year over 300 people die in ladder-related accidents, and thousands suffer disabling injuries. Last year, the American Ladder Institute (ALI) celebrated the second annual National Ladder Safety Month from February 25 - March 31. This important month was designed to raise awareness of ladder safety and to decrease the number of ladder-related injuries and fatalities. Learn more about who heard our message in 2018.

What is National Ladder Safety Month?

National Ladder Safety Month is the only movement dedicated exclusively to the promotion of ladder safety, at home and at work. During March 2018, National Ladder Safety Month brought heightened awareness to the importance of the safe use of ladders through resources, training and a national dialogue.

ALI, the only approved developer of safety standards for the U.S. ladder industry, is the presenting sponsor for National Ladder Safety Month.

 

The “why”: Every life saved is precious

ALI believes ladder accidents are preventable, but without better safety planning and training and continuous innovation in product design, we will continue to see far too many fatalities. Please join ALI and its members in sharing this message with the world.

The goals of National Ladder Safety Month are to:

  • Increase the number of ladder safety training certificates issued by ALI
  • Increase the frequency that ladder safety training modules are viewed on www.laddersafetytraining.org 
  • Lower the rankings of ladder-related safety citations on OSHA’s yearly “Top 10 Citations List”
  • Decrease number of ladder-related injuries and fatalities
  • Increase the number of in-person ladder trainings
  • Increase the number of companies and individuals that inspect and properly dispose of old, damaged or obsolete ladders

Sign up to receive more information from ALI on how you can participate in spreading awareness about ladder safety at work, ladder safety at home, and proper ladder inspection and disposal.
