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.
National Ladder Safety Month goals include:
- Increase the number of ladder safety training certificates issued by ALI
- Lower the rankings of ladder-related safety citations on OSHA’s yearly “Top 10 Citations List”
- Decrease ladder-related injuries and fatalities
- Increase the number of competent ladder inspector training sessions
- Increase the number of companies and individuals that inspect and properly dispose of old, damaged or obsolete ladders
Ladder safety will also be an important component of OSHA’s annual National Safety Stand-Down in May.
