Werner to Increase Safety Training Events
Werner to host onsite and virtual training programs to support OSHA’s annual safety initiative
Werner, the world leader in ladders and manufacturer of climbing products and fall protection equipment, will almost double the number of safety training events this year by offering both on-site and virtual webinars. In support of the Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s (OSHA) National Safety Stand-Down Initiative, Werner is the only manufacturer to serve both climbing and fall protection users. Ongoing training and education is a vital part of ensuring professionals are kept safe on the work site.
The 10th annual OSHA National Safety Stand-Down event is scheduled from May 1-5, and encourages workplaces to discuss safety, potential fall hazards and the importance of fall prevention. The Safety Stand Down initiative lasts through the entire month of May and includes access to free webinars and training content for any professional that is interested.
Both in-person and online Werner events are planned for the entire month of May as members of the 36-person National Jobsite Safety and Security Team will be traveling the United States to lead five levels of fall protection and ladder safety training sessions. If virtual training is preferred, Werner will host two webinars on-demand with Werner safety and technical experts. Webinars will be posted on the Werner Safety page on the following dates and will remain posted to allow flexible viewing opportunities.
- Tuesday, May 2 – Safety ABCDEs
- Thursday, May 18 – Self-Retracting Lines Facts and Fiction
With the increased number of Werner focused events this year, the company has a goal of training 50,000 users, an increase of more than 20,000 from 2022. Safety directors, construction professionals and industry pros can sign up to participate for training, education and access to free resources online.
