Springville, Utah, December 4, 2017 – Little Giant Ladder Systems®—the industry leader in ladder safety innovation—McCrory & Associates Little Giant’s representatives for the southwest United States—and APE Companies—Houston-based distributor—are hosting a ladder safety training event on Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017 in Houston, Texas.

The true national ladder safety statistics are shocking— today, tomorrow and every day one person will die in a ladder accident. Every day 2,000 people are injured while using ladders; 100 suffer a long-term or permanent disability. And the statistics get worse every year.

“We are pleased to partner with McCrory & Associates and APE Companies to provide the great people of Houston the safest products that help working men and women return home from work unharmed,” said Ryan Moss, CEO.

To combat these statistics, Little Giant and Houston-based McCrory & Associates are holding an event teaching safe ladder use. Anyone interested in getting certified in ladder safety is invited to attend. Attendees will see Little Giant’s latest products, including the world’s lightest fiberglass extension ladder, the HyperLite™. Those who complete the training will receive lunch and be entered to win prizes and gifts, including several ladders from Little Giant Ladder Systems.

“Ladder safety education and certification will help workers prevent workplace accidents,” said H. Arthur Wing, Executive Chairman.  “There is a problem in the industry, and we are improving these statistics—to prevent injuries and save lives. By attending this training event, workers will be equipped to use their ladders safely, helping them get home safely.”

The event will be Dec. 5, 2017 from 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at APE Companies, 3009 Pasadena Freeway, Suite 100 in Pasadena, Texas. To RSVP, email jessicag@ladders.com or call 801-489-3684.
