Werner tipped off Ladder Safety Month on Feb. 29 with ladder safety training events across the country. Recognizing 2024 as a leap year, the job site safety and security team identified the opportunity to add an extra day to spread the word about ladder safety.

“Our job site safety teams are doing on-site safety training all across the country almost every day,” said Chad Lingerfelt, director of safety training at WernerCo. “And even when we’re not on-site, we’re still thinking safety 365 days a year. Every four years, we have a chance to call it 366.”

In addition to the one-day training blitz, Werner is supporting American Ladder Institute’s Ladder Safety Month initiative for the eighth straight year. The JSS team will continue on-site training throughout the month, and ladder safety webinars will be available through ALI registration and available for replay at wernerco.com/safety.

Werner webinars include “Training and Awareness” at 12 p.m. CT on Tuesday, March 5, and “Stabilization, Setup and Accessories” at 12 p.m. CT on Tuesday, March 19. Both webinars will be presented by Eric Blankinship, Werner Senior Product Manager.

To promote awareness throughout March, Werner will continue to post compelling content across its social channels and website. The brand is even leveraging its role as “the official ladder of NCAA March Madness” to spread the word. All of these efforts are with the purpose of bringing more attention to safe ladder practices and ultimately reducing ladder incidents in 2024.
