Nationwide Free Ladder Safety Training
Reduces Injuries and Saves Lives

Springville, Utah, October 22, 2012 – Little Giant Ladder Systems®,
(, maker of the original articulating ladder, announced today
two new patented ladder innovations and the nationwide free ladder safety training are
being highlighted at the National Safety Congress and Expo in Orlando, Florida,
October 22-24.
“The numbers are shocking. Every day 500 people are injured while using traditional
style ladders; 25 are permanently disabled, and tragically, 1 person dies—every day,”
said Ryan Moss, CEO of Little Giant Ladder Systems and Vice President of the
American Ladder Institute. “Dozens of families are impacted every day, not to mention
the cost of time, compensation, and medical expenses. Continuing education and
innovation are the only ways companies can prevent ladder accidents.”
Little Giant is working closely with corporate safety directors, professional associations,
labor unions, trade groups, and companies to train and educate operators in the most
up-to-date ladder safety techniques. Dave Francis, National Safety Director, travels all
over the country leading free, live training sessions with all kinds of organizations. And,
in cooperation with the other members of ALI, Little Giant promotes the most
comprehensive online safety training on the web.

The new Aerial Safety Cage™ bridges the gap between OSHA tie-off rules and
operational efficiency. Unlike any other climbing or aerial access equipment ever built
in the U.S., the fully enclosed Cage allows aerial access without requiring operators to

“The Aerial Safety Cage is a huge step forward in industrial safety equipment,” said H.
Arthur Wing, President. “You can take it almost anywhere on a jobsite, and you can
work both quickly and safely while in complete compliance with OSHA regulations. And
more importantly, the Cage will get more operators home safely every day.”
Little Giant’s SumoStance™, the world’s only wide-stance extension ladder now with
leveling outriggers, is 600% more stable than other ladders. Doubling the base width of
ordinary extension ladders, the SumoStance prevents injuries and potentially saves
lives by automatically adjusting the outriggers to eliminate human error.

“Over-reaching at the top of a ladder is a major cause of some of the most deadly
ladder accidents,” said Wing. “Using the ladders on uneven ground only compounds
the problem. The SumoStance’s wide base and leveling outriggers can practically
eliminate the risk of a tall extension ladder tipping on the side.”

The Little Giant Cage and will be available at construction and industrial equipment
distributors nationwide in November 2012.
The SumoStance™ wide-stance extension ladder is now available at hardware stores
and industry supply houses nationwide.
