The American Ladder Institute (ALI) announced the official launch of its newly redesigned website, www.americanladderinstitute.org. According to ALI, the purpose of the redesign is to advance ALI’s mission of promoting ladder safety in the workplace and home through education, training and development of ladder safety standards.
“We’re very proud of our mission in promoting ladder safety, and our new website will greatly enhance those efforts,” says Jeff Inks, ALI’s executive director.
The redesigned website provides visitors with a more streamlined and accessible experience enabling them find what they are looking for quickly. ALI’s information on ladder safety, ladder safety standards, and gateway to ALI’s online ladder safety training are now incorporated into a single website.
Additionally, ALI’s online ladder safety training, at www.laddersafetytraining.org, is provided free of charge in both English and Spanish. The website grants access to ALI’s library of four safety training modules that teach safe ladder practices, including proper techniques to select, inspect, set up, use and care for ladders.
“ALI’s Ladder Safety Training platform demonstrates our strong commitment to the safe use of all ladders by all people,” says Inks. “We recognize that it’s not enough to set standards and expect them to have any real impact without proper instruction and easy-to-use resources for using ladders safely.”
ALI also serves as secretariat for the ANSI A14 Committee on Ladder Safety, which is responsible for the development of a suite of eight and soon to be nine ladder safety standards. Information on these standards is now also more easily accessible on the redesigned website. Visitors to the site and other interested parties are able to submit comments, questions, or requests for interpretations on any of the A14 ladder safety standards.
