Werner, manufacturer of ladders, climbing products and fall protection equipment, will offer safety training both onsite and through virtual resources to support the Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s (OSHA) National Safety Stand-Down Initiative.
The voluntary OSHA event encourages workplaces to take a break and discuss falling hazards during the week of May 3–7.
Members of Werner’s 36-member National Jobsite Safety and Security Team will be traveling the United States throughout the month of May leading fall protection and ladder safety training sessions. There will be two live webinars with the company’s top safety professionals. In addition, construction pros can access virtual training options anytime through Werner’s global learning platform at MyWernerCo.com.
“Our commitment goes far beyond selling a climbing solution. We are education experts that provide the highest performing products to maximize productivity and safety,” said Josh Rizzo, jobsite safety and security director at Werner Co. “With fall protection as a top OSHA violation, it’s more critical than ever for Werner to provide educational safety training that offers a personal approach, while providing hands-on safety tips and practices.”
Werner trains an average of 25,000 individuals each year during OSHA’s annual Safety Stand-Down. Safety directors and professionals can sign up to participate at wernerco.com/training.
