Ladders are a leading cause of injuries and fatalities in the workplace. The staggering human and financial cost associated with ladder accidents looms large, as they are ubiquitous throughout all industries, increasing expensive workers' compensation claims and a diminished workforce.
According to a recent report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, ladder-related incidents led to over 150 worker fatalities and more than 20,000 injuries in 2015. For the last two years, ladders ranked seventh on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) “Top 10” list of violations.
To bring awareness to the importance of safe ladder use, March has been designated as National Ladder Safety Month. In support of this initiative, AmTrust is providing open access to our collection of ladder safety videos.
