“It’s better to build a fence at the top of a cliff than to park an ambulance at the bottom,”
said Art Wing, Chairman and President of Little Giant Ladder Systems. “Leading safety
leaders and professionals now focus on fall prevention, rather than protection. New
improved training techniques and prevention through innovation are helping
organizations save time, money, and most importantly, lives.”
Every day approximately 2,000 people are injured while using a ladder and as many as
100 will suffer a permanent or long-term disability. Today, one person will die in a
ladder-related accident. Safety professionals can help reduce these numbers in two
1. Improving training through free live and online resources
2. Taking advantage of new advancements in aerial access equipment
During the five-day Congress & Expo, Little Giant will distribute a free ladder safety
toolbox containing safety training videos, tools for smartphones and tablets, and on-thejob
trainings to help safety professionals prevent injuries and save lives. The latest
innovative advancements in ladder equipment will also be showcased at Booth #829.
“Tragically, one person dies every day in a ladder accident,” said Ryan Moss, CEO of
Little Giant Ladder Systems and Vice President of the American Ladder Institute.
“Rather than running from the problem, we are embracing the statistics and doing
something about them. Little Giant’s over-riding goal is to prevent injuries and save
lives. Getting that one person home safely to family and friends—that is what gets us
out of bed each morning. We are literally changing the world, one ladder at a time.”
