The Association of General Contractors (AGC) of America is holding a free webinar on Wednesday, May 10, 2018 from 1:00pm – 2:30pm. The webinar will focus on Ladder Safety. David Francis, National Safety Director for Little Giant Ladders will be the featured speaker.

This webinar ties into the May 7-11 activities for Safety Week and OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction.

Three of OSHA’s top ten ‘serious’ violations (#1, #3, #7) are related to falls.  Every day nearly 2,000 people are injured while using a ladder, and as many as 100 of them will suffer a long-term disability.  Today, one person will die in a ladder-related accident.  Fall-related accidents account for huge expenses to organizations, as well as long term effects for family, friends, co-workers, HR & legal departments and the C-suite. Reducing the number of ladder-related injuries is becoming top priority for the nation’s foremost companies, and Little Giant Ladders’ National Safety Director, Dave Francis, is leading the charge.
