Learn How to Protect Your Crews During Ladder Safety Month

March 1, 2023
The month of March is the National Ladder Safety Month. Here are some resources to keep your field workers safe when they need to use ladders on the job.

Falls are in the top three most disabling workplace injuries, and ladders are #6 on OSHA's Top 10 Most Cited Violations list. In addition, hundreds of people die in ladder-related incidents, and thousands are injured. 

To protect workers on ladders, companies can participate in the seventh annual National Ladder Safety Month program supported by the National Ladder Safety Institute. If your company is looking for a Toolbox Talk for your next crew safety meeting, check out the resources on this page

You can also attend one of the Webinars on ladder safety, plan an event or print out a flier for your work crews. 

Here are the weekly themes during the month of March:

  • Week One: Choosing Your Ladder
  • Week Two: Safety Before the First Step (Inspection and Set Up)
  • Week Three: Safety While Climbing
  • Week Four: Safety at the Top
