March is National Ladder Safety Month. Whether your affiliate uses stepladders or extension ladders, it is important to use them properly and safely.

According to the World Health Organization, the United States leads the world in ladder deaths. Each year in the U.S., there are more than 164,000 emergency room-treated injuries and 300 deaths caused by falls from ladders. Most ladder deaths are from falls of 10 feet or less. To raise awareness of ladder safety and to decrease the number of ladder-related injuries and fatalities, National Ladder Safety Month was created.

Increase your affiliate’s safety by participating in National Ladder Safety Month events:

  • March 3 – 9: Ladder Safety Training and Year Round Partners
  • March 10 – 16: Ladder Safety at Work
  • March 17 – 23: Ladder Safety at Home
  • March 24 – 31: Ladder Inspection and Disposal

Don’t let your affiliate employees or volunteers become a statistic. Train everyone on ladder safety. The Habitat for Humanity Affiliate Insurance Program offers an online ladder safety course to make it quick and easy for your affiliate to be safe while using ladders.

Log in and take the course today. If you have additional questions on properly using ladders, call us at (888) 553-9002.
