ALI Launches Ladder Safety Site

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

Comment | More

The nonprofit American Ladder Institute (ALI) has launched a new resource, www.laddersafety.org, to educate contracting professionals and the public about the proper selection, care and safe use of ladders.

The site’s primary feature is a comprehensive ladder listing with images, performance requirements, design features and guidelines for proper care and storage.  The site is organized by ladder type with additional technical support resources. The diverse listing includes a range of ladder types, including step ladders, extension ladders, mobile ladder stands and fixed ladders.

Site visitors also have access to helpful tips such as the basic ladder safety page. The page features the “Three Points-of-Contact Climb,” which illustrates how to minimize chances of slipping and falling, and “How to Choose the Right Ladder,” which features ladder design, length and duty rating.

“ALI is very proud of our new educational offering.  Business owners and consumers will benefit from the web site as it provides valuable information on a variety of ladder types,” said Janet Rapp, ALI executive director. “Most importantly, the site will equip people with practical knowledge for safe ladder use on the job site or at home.”

Founded in 1948, The American Ladder Institute is a national trade association whose mission is to educate the public on the proper selection, care and safe use of ladders. ALI is the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-approved developer of industry standards. For more information, contact ALI at 312.673.5769 or through www.americanladderinstitute.org.
