The American Ladder Institute, the national trade association representing the North American ladder industry, has released an upgrade of its primary website, www.americanladderinsitute.org.
The site is the primary source for consumers seeking ladder safety information. Professional and in-home users can access information about ALI’s standards, basic ladder safety procedures, and the value of ALI membership. ALI’s current safety programs, such as the new ladder safety Website and the soon to be released Multimedia Training Program are featured.
Board member Tom Schmitt of Louisville Ladder gave the site a thumbs-up: “The new site looks really good; I also found it easy to navigate through the material.”
