National Ladder Safety Month- March 2019

Every year over 100 people die in ladder-related accidents, and thousands suffer disabling injuries. Join the American Ladder Institute (ALI) and participate in the third annual National Ladder Safety Month February 24 – March 31.

This important month was designed to raise awareness of ladder safety and to decrease the number of ladder-related injuries and fatalities.

During the month of March, each week brings a new focus:

  • February 24 – March 2: What is Ladder Safety?
  • March 3 – 9: Ladder Safety Training and Year Round Partners
  • March 10 – 16: Ladder Safety at Work
  • March 17 – 23: Ladder Safety at Home
  • March 24 – 31: Ladder Inspection and Disposal

  • 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
