Welcome to the Ladder Safety Hub!

We have put this community page together to inform and encourage dialog among safety professionals across all industries.

Every day more than 500 people are injured in a ladder-related fall or accident; as many as 25 are permanently disabled in some way.  And every day, one person will die.  That’s just too many.  So we decided to figure out what we could do to change things.  But we found out really quickly that we don’t know everything.

So we created the Ladder Safety Hub.  I am Dave Francis, National Safety Director for Little Giant Ladder Systems, and the lead editor for this page.  Little Giant is picking up the bill for running this site, but The Hub’s contributing editors and I will be managing it.  The editorial team will be made up of some of the top, most experienced safety professionals in the world, from every industry, including cable/satellite/telecom, commercial construction, mining, and utilities.

We hope that with all of us coming together, sharing our experience, tips, knowledge, and especially ideas, we can work some real changes in our own industries.

I believe we can get more of our people home safely to their families every day.  And that’s what it’s really all about.

Climb On,
