March is National Ladder Safety Month

Every year over 300 people die in ladder-related accidents, and thousands suffer disabling injuries. The American Ladder Institute (ALI) has declared March as National Ladder Safety Month, in order to raise awareness of ladder safety and to decrease the number of ladder-related injuries and fatalities.

The goals of National Ladder Safety Month are to:

• Increase the number of ladder safety training certificates issued by ALI
• Increase the frequency that ladder safety training modules are viewed on www.laddersafetytraining.org
• Lower the rankings of ladder-related safety citations on OSHA's yearly "Top 10 Citations List"
• Decrease number of ladder-related injuries and fatalities
• Increase the number of in-person ladder trainings
• Increase the number of companies and individuals that inspect and properly dispose of old, damaged or obsolete ladders
