One hundred and five years ago, corporate leaders came together for the first Safety Congress and envisioned a national organization solely dedicated to the promotion of safety - the National Safety Council (NSC).


More than 12,000 safety, health and environmental professionals demonstrated their commitment to safety excellence by collectively honoring and advancing their journey at the 2013 NSC Congress & Expo. The steady attendance year over year is evidence of the importance companies continue to place on building and sustaining a culture inclusive of safety.


Safety excellence is an ongoing journey. Learn how to apply best practices and successful methods to transform your biggest challenges. Be a force of change in your organization by bringing the knowledge home!

Werner will be at booth #814.

Different types of ladders are designed to keep you safe and productive when climbing or standing. Using the wrong style of ladder or simply ignoring the limitations of climbing equipment can result in a fall or serious injury.
Height is referring to the actual ladder height. Extension ladders should be 7 to 10 feet longer than the highest support or contact point, which may be the wall or roof line. The highest standing level is four rungs down from the top. The highest permitted standing level on a stepladder is two steps down from the top.

Reach height is the maximum reach assuming a 5’6” person with a vertical 12” reach.
Ladders are designed to safely hold up to a specific amount of weight. The Werner Performance System defines five different capacities using a color and star rating system. The Duty Rating is defined as the maximum safe load capacity of the ladder. A person’s fully clothed weight plus the weight of any tools and materials that are carried onto the ladder must be less than the load capacity.

Werner offers ladder made from fiberglass and aluminum. Each material has characteristics which make it best for certain applications, or one material may simply fit the personal preferences of the user. For example, if working around electricity users should select fiberglass products due to their non-conductive side rails.
