National Ladder Safety Month is an annual event that takes place each March and is dedicated exclusively to promoting ladder safety at work and at home.
The annual event, in partnership with the American Ladder Institute (ALI), raises awareness of ladder safety and training resources.
According to the American Ladder Institute (ALI), there are more than 136,000 ladder-related emergency room visits per year.
However, ladder accidents are preventable, and Werner has created training and resources that can help build safer work environments.
National Ladder Safety Month increases awareness for the safe use of ladders through education, resources and training programs.
“Werner is deeply committed to providing solutions that keep our end-users safe and productive. In support of that commitment, we are partnering with the American Ladder Institute by continuing our sponsorship of Ladder Safety Month,” said Pat McAuliffe, Vice President of Engineering at WernerCo and ALI Board Member.
Every Tuesday throughout March, Werner will present safety-focused webinars with topics that include:
