ALI Releases Revised Ladder Standard

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Comment | More

The American Ladder Institute (ALI) has released an updated version of the A14.3 standard to help reduce personal injuries during fixed ladder use. The 2008 revised standard has safety features and standard requirements for cages, wells, and ladder safety systems, according to Jim Smith, the chairman of the A14.3 Subcommittee. The standard is endorsed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

 

In addition to A14.3, the American National Standards Committee ASC A14 prepared six other standards. They include

  • A14.1—Wood Ladders,
  • A14.2—Portable Metal Ladders,
  • A14.4—Job Made Wooden Ladders,
  • A14.5—Portable Reinforced Plastic Ladders,
  • A14.7—Mobile Ladder Stands and Mobile Ladder Stand Platforms, and
  • A14.9—Ceiling Mounted Disappearing Climbing Systems.

 

Founded in 1947, ALI’s mission is to educate the public about the selection, care, and safe use of ladders. ALI provides technical specifications and other precise criteria to be used as guidelines to ensure that materials, products, and processes are appropriate for their purpose.
