Ladder Institute Unveils New Training

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Comment | More

The American Ladder Institute (ALI) has introduced a comprehensive, new Multimedia Training Program that is free to all users.

Training focuses on proper selection, use and care of ladders and allows access to a variety of modules.  A certificate of completion is available once the post-training test has been completed and passed satisfactorily.

ALI,  the national trade association representing the North American ladder industry, will exhibit the program Oct. 26-28 at the National Safety Council Expo in Orlando.

“This quality training program can be adopted by small and large companies, unions, and contractors,” said Janet Rapp, ALI Executive Director.  “Free of charge, it will allow comprehensive training to be accessed online for real-time instruction. Companies without training budgets or research & development resources can simply log in and train staff to maximize safety.”

The training program follows the recent introduction of ALI’s new web site, www.laddersafety.org, designed to provide ladder safety information by ladder type. The information is provided in a user-friendly, less-technical manner but is based on ladder safety standards, of which ALI is the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved developer.

ALI’s current ladder safety standards are:  

• A14.1 - Wood Ladders

• A14.2 - Portable Metal Ladders

• A14.3 - Fixed Ladders

• A14.4 - Job Made Wooden Ladders

• A14.5 - Portable Reinforced Plastic Ladders

• A14.7 - Mobile Ladder Stands and Mobile Ladder Stand Platforms

• A14.9 - Ceiling Mounted Disappearing Climbing Systems

ALI has also recently revised its primary website, www.americanladderinstitute.org.

For more information, contact ALI at 312.673.5769 or visit www.americanladderinstitute.org/ali/content.aspx?pageid=40#multimedia.

Where exactly is this (online?) training program? It is not immediately apparent on the laddersafety.org website - do you have a direct link?
