Ladders are a daily piece of equipment for many trades not only around the workplace but also around homes. However, lack of ladder safety knowledge and/or having the incorrect equipment, can often result in a serious accident or even death. In fact according to ALI (American Ladder Institute) more than 300 people die in ladder-related accidents on an annual basis and thousands more suffer disabling injuries.
Raising awareness of ladder safety
ALI has declared March 2017 to be the first ever 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. It is a stepping stone to raise awareness of ladder safety and to decrease the number of ladder-related injuries and fatalities.
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.
