Observed annually in March and spearheaded by the American Ladder Institute, National Ladder Safety Month is the only program dedicated exclusively to promoting ladder safety at home and work. Throughout the month, individuals and organizations nationwide are coming together to promote ladder safety and decrease the number of ladder-related incidents.
ALI is the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved developer of ladder safety Standards and believes ladder accidents are preventable with thorough safety planning, training, and continuous innovation in product design. The more people, organizations, and businesses get involved, the wider the message spreads, and the more people learn about proper ladder safety.
In March 2023, education and promotion will focus on the following topics:
- Week One: Choosing Your Ladder
- Week Two: Safety Before the First Step (Inspection and Set Up)
- Week Three: Safety While Climbing
- Week Four: Safety at the Top
