Werner Ladder Schedule Free Safety Training

Another Happy Customer

"I started working as a Safety Director for my current employer back in July 2016 and from day one I set out to put together a world class training platform that I felt would eliminate serious injuries and fatalities (SIF’S).

Almost 18 months later our injuries are way down year over year for the past 10 years and all injuries thus far have been minor. I started by addressing Falls from Height. By addressing the lack of PFAS training and quality fall protection gear first, I can say with confidence, that the ultimate Dream Team of Fall Protection training and supply came to fruition with the hard work of Werner’s End User Specialist team and our local supplier. Our distributor connected me with Jeff Dean from Werner and so began what I believe is the greatest level of training and supply of high quality PFAS gear that a Safety Director of a small GC could dream of.

In closing, I am a better and far more knowledgeable Safety Director, thanks to the many phone calls, text messages and emails that Jeff has both answered and swiftly responded to. Thank you Jeff for being a part of my success in keeping all C-A employees safe when working at height."

Select choices

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 reach 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.

Performance system
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.
