National Ladder Safety Month was created to raise awareness of ladder safety and to decrease the number of ladder-related injuries and fatalities. It is the only movement dedicated exclusively to the promotion of ladder safety at home and at work.

Every year, over 100 people die in ladder-related accidents and thousands suffer disabling injuries. According to the American Ladder Institute (ALI), the most common ladder accidents include missing the last step when climbing down from a ladder and overreaching while standing on a ladder. In addition, most falls from ladders happen when the person is standing between 6 and 10 feet off the ground.

Falls are the leading cause of death in construction and every year falls from ladders make up nearly a third of those deaths. These deaths are preventable. In the construction industry, ladders and fall protection continue to appear on OSHA’s list of Top 10 Most Frequently Cited Standards.
