Ladder Injuries in Perspective
Falls from heights are one of the leading causes of serious work-related injuries and deaths. OSHA estimates that on average, approximately 200,000 serious injuries and 345 fatalities occur annually among workers directly affected by falls. To put this figure in perspective, on average 271 die in plane crashes each year in the US.
Get Yourself Correctly Trained
In the UK, Ladder Training Courses from The Ladder Association are part of a national training scheme for users, supervisors and managers wanting to equip themselves with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to use ladders legally and safely. Find out how you can easily get trained on a half-day course that equips you with the knowledge needed to stay safe at height and gives you a Ladder Card valid for 5 years.
Taking Part in #LadderSafetyMonth 2023
To help raise awareness of ladder safety, we have joined the #LadderSafetyMonth initiative in the United States to demonstrate how ladder products can keep you safe when used correctly for the right application.
American Ladder Institute (ALI), the only approved developer of safety standards for the US ladder industry, is the presenting sponsor for National Ladder Safety Month.
Ladder Safety Month
In 2022, the CEO of Wing (Little Giant Ladders) and current Chair of the American Ladder Institute addressed the Ladder Association Conference in Stratford-upon-Avon and discussed the potential improvements when we work together to improve ladder safety.
