National Ladder Safety Month to kick off tomorrow

Ladders are used in all different kinds of workplaces. So, the range of workers who could potentially suffer ladder accidents on the job is incredibly wide. Such accidents can take a major toll on workers. According to federal data, in 2015, U.S. workers suffered over 20,000 nonfatal injuries in ladder-related incidents at work. The statistics also indicate that such accidents took the lives of over 150 workers that year.

Tomorrow will kick off a brand new campaign aimed at improving workplace ladder safety and reducing ladder accidents. The campaign in question is National Ladder Safety Month. Under the campaign, every March will get this designation from now on. The campaign is by the American Ladder Institute, a ladder industry group.

It will be interesting to see how the first run of this special safety month goes and what kinds of educational and awareness efforts it ends up including. What things would you like to see employers and workers here Louisiana do to promote ladder safety in the workplace during this inaugural National Ladder Safety Month?

Many different factors can contribute to a workplace ladder accident. When a person is hurt at work in connection to an incident involving a ladder, their compensation situation, such as whether they could pursue a third-party claim, can be heavily impacted by the specifics of their accident. Skilled work injury attorneys can help workers hurt in ladder accidents understand what the details of their accident mean regarding what compensation options may be open to them.
