“Fall-related accidents while on a worksite account for one of the largest expenses to many organizations,” said Art Wing, Chairman and President of Little Giant Ladder Systems. “Reducing the number of ladder-related injuries is becoming a top priority for the nation’s foremost companies, and Little Giant is leading the charge. New improved training techniques and prevention through innovation are helping organizations save time, money, and most importantly, lives.”
Three of OSHA’s top-ten most-cited violations relate to falls. Everyday 2,000 people are injured while using a ladder, 100 suffer a long-term or permanent disability, and one person will die in a ladder-related accident. At ASSE, occupational safety professionals from throughout the world will learn how to improve worksite safety by:
• Utilizing the right training through free live and online resources
• Taking advantage of new pioneering advancements in ladder equipment.
During the four-day Conference and Expo, Little Giant will showcase the world’s newest innovations in ladder equipment at Booth #729.
“For many companies, ladder-related incidents are the single greatest injury and losttime expense,” said Ryan Moss, CEO of Little Giant Ladder Systems and President of the American Ladder Institute. “Rather than running from the problem, we are analyzing the root cause of the statistics and doing something about them. Little Giant’s overriding 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.”
