Little Giant® and Mallory Safety Supply Team up to Offer Free Ladder Safety Training in Oregon
Springville, Utah, October 15, 2017 – Little Giant Ladder Systems®, the industry leader in ladder safety innovation, and Mallory Safety & Supply, the largest independent safety distributor on the West Coast, are hosting a ladder safety training event on Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017 in Portland, Ore.
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 Mallory Safety & Supply to provide the great people of Oregon the safest products that help working men and women return home from work safe and unharmed,” said Ryan Moss, CEO.
To combat these statistics, Little Giant and Portland-based Mallory Safety & Supply 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 certification will help workers prevent workplace accidents,” said H. Arthur Wing, Chairman and President. “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 Nov. 9, 2017 from 10:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m. at Lucky Labrador Beer Hall, 1945 NW Quimby Street in Portland. To RSVP, email email@example.com or call 801-489-3684.
