National Initiative & Resources to Help Prevent Injuries, Save Lives™
Released at ASSE National Conference
Springville, Utah, June 9, 2014 – Little Giant Ladder Systems® (www.littlegiantladders.com),
the industry leader in ladder safety innovations, today launched a ladder safety toolbox
containing safety training videos, tools for smartphones and tablets, and live, on-the-job
trainings to help safety professionals prevent injuries and save lives.
Little Giant Ladders has been invited to present to more than 5,000 safety and health
professionals at the ASSE Safety 2014 Professional Development Conference & Expo in
Orlando June 8-11.
Every day nearly 2,000 people are injured while using a ladder and as many as 100 will suffer a
long-term disability. Today, one person will die in a ladder-related accident. These numbers
can be reduced in two ways:
1. Improving training through free live and online resources, and
2. Taking advantage of new advancements in aerial access equipment.
“Better training and innovation in ladder safety will help organizations save time, money, and
most importantly, lives,” said Art Wing, Chairman and President of Little Giant Ladder Systems.
“It’s better to build a fence at the top of a cliff than to park an ambulance at the bottom. Little
Giant’s national initiative, safety trainings and ladder safety toolbox will help safety professionals
prevent injuries and save lives.”
Raising ongoing awareness for OSHA’s National Safety Stand Down Campaign, David Francis,
Little Giant’s National Safety Director, will present “Preventing Injuries – Savings Lives™:
Ladder Safety Training” on June 11th from 1:45 – 2:45 pm.
During the four-day conference, Little Giant will distribute the free ladder safety toolbox and
showcase the latest innovative advancements in ladder equipment at Booth #863.
“Today, tomorrow and everyday one person will die 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 statistics, we are embracing them and doing something about them. Little
Giant’s over-riding goal is to prevent injuries and save lives. Moving one person off that injury
and death list, saving one life—that is what gets us up in the morning and helps us sleep at
night. We want to literally change the world, one ladder at a time.”
