National Ladder Safety Month

The American Ladder Institute (ALI) has dedicated March 2017 to ladder safety awareness. The month will be a one-stop shop for safe ladder use for working professionals and homeowners. The presenting sponsor, ALI, encourages both individuals and companies to support National Ladder Safety Month and spread awareness about the importance of ladder safety.

“Every year over 300 people die in ladder-related accidents, and thousands suffer disabling injuries,” said Ryan Moss, president of ALI, and CEO of Little Giant Ladder Systems. “Without better training and continuous innovation in safety, planning and product design, we will continue to see far too many fatalities. National Ladder Safety Month will heighten awareness, reinforce safety training and educated homeowners and working professionals. The American Ladder Institute is calling upon all individuals and organizations throughout the nation to promote and to participate in ladder safety.”

During March 2017, National Ladder Safety Month will bring heightened awareness to the importance of the safe use of ladders through resources, training and a national dialogue. The month of March will be divided into four areas of focus that support ladder safety.

March 1-11: Overall Importance of Ladder Safety

March 12-18: Ladder Safety at Work

March 19-25: Ladder Safety at Home

March 26-April 1: Ladder Inspection and Disposal
