Werner Ladder Sponsors American Ladder Institute and National Ladder Safety Month Initiatives For Sixth Year
Werner, the world leader in ladders and the manufacturer of climbing products and fall protection equipment, is celebrating six years of sponsoring National Ladder Safety Month, which takes place every March. This annual event is dedicated to promoting the safe use of ladders at home and on the jobsite through training, resources, and ongoing education.
Ladder safety affects everyone, and unfortunately, ladder-related injuries and fatalities are far too common. Last year, fall protection ranked first on OSHA’s Top 10 most frequently cited violations, while ladders ranked third. According to the American Ladder Institute (ALI), more than 700 ladder-related injuries happen daily. Werner is committed to creating comprehensive training and resources that can help prevent ladder-related accidents and build safer work and home environments.
Every Tuesday throughout the month beginning March 8th, Werner has partnered with the American Ladder Institute to present a Ladder Safety Webinar Series focused on key topics to include:
