National Ladder Safety Month Graphic. Safe at home. Safe at work.

Ladders are a common household tool, used in all seasons for everything from spring cleaning to holiday decorating. They are also vital to job sites for many industries. While ladders are safe when used properly, thousands of injuries still occur each year. This is why the American Ladder Institute (ALI) created its signature safety event, National Ladder Safety Month, which is held each March and is the only program dedicated exclusively to promoting ladder safety at home and work.

For the eighth year in a row, National Ladder Safety Month will rally individuals and companies nationwide to spread the word on safe ladder use. By joining the conversation on social media using #LadderSafetyMonth, utilizing American Ladder Institute’s free Ladder Safety Training, accessing the official marketing guide, and more, you will be playing a part in decreasing ladder injuries and fatalities worldwide. Each week in March, National Ladder Safety Month will focus on four different themes to help drive the conversation and direct the focus on separate areas of ladder safety.

  • Week One: Training and Awareness
  • Week Two: Inspection and Maintenance
  • Week Three: Stabilization, Setup, and Accessories
  • Week Four: Safe Climbing and Positioning
