Werner plans to train thousands through virtual and in-person safety trainings in support of annual Safety Stand-Down initiative
Werner, manufacturer of ladders and climbing products and fall protection equipment, will train thousands of workers across the country in support of OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down initiative. Werner will lead ladder safety and fall protection training sessions both virtually and in-person. Construction professionals will also be able to access free Fall Protection and Ladder Safety courses online, as well as download an all-new Climbing Handbook designed to help users with ladder selection and how to use ladders safely.
OSHA’s Safety Stand-Down is a voluntary event that encourages employers to take some time to focus on key hazards in the construction industry and how end-users can prevent falls, injuries and fatalities. This year, the agency’s official Safety Stand-Down week is September 14-18, but Werner’s focus on training and support will be featured the entire month.
Throughout the month of September, the WernerCo Jobsite Safety & Security Team (JSS) will lead Safety Stand-Down training events, both online and in-person. Trainings will focus on Fall Protection and Ladder Safety basics but can be customized to fit specific jobsite needs.
Employers interested in accessing a higher standard of safety training this September can sign up for an in-person or virtual training session with a Werner JSS pro on the Werner website. These 30-minute sessions will be full of best practices for keeping employees safe. From choosing the right ladder for the job to understanding ladder inspection and fall protection guidelines, users will walk away with safe climbing habits. Users can also visit Werner’s comprehensive training website to take further courses to earn certificates and download the new Climbing Handbook.
