National Ladder Safety Month is observed in March and championed by the American Ladder Institute (ALI). It’s the only program dedicated exclusively to promoting ladder safety at home and at work. Each year, tens of thousands of injuries and hundreds of deaths are caused by ladder misuse. By providing critical guidelines and raising awareness on the safe use of ladders, we can help decrease these numbers.

Ladder accidents are preventable with thorough safety planning, training, and continuous innovation in product design. The more people, organizations, and businesses get involved, the wider the message spreads about proper ladder safety.

This year’s campaign will focus on a different theme each week during March:

  • Week One: Training and Awareness
  • Week Two: Inspection and Maintenance
  • Week Three: Stabilization, Setup, and Accessories
  • Week Four: Safe Climbing and Positioning

The campaign also focuses on choosing the right ladder. Keep the following tips in mind from ALI:

  • Take your work environment into account when choosing your ladder
  • Consider the length of ladder you need
  • Pay attention to the duty rating of your ladder
