Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a high profile issue that affects million of workers around the world. The World Health Organization estimates that as many as 30% of new and remodeled buildings world wide can be classified as “problem buildings” – where productivity is impaired by poor IAQ.

Ladder safety is critical in the workplace to prevent accidents and ensure the safety of employees. Each year in the U.S. there are more than 164,000 emergency room-treated injuries and 300 deaths that are caused by falls from ladders. An estimated 81% of fall injuries treated in hospital emergency rooms involve a ladder. In most situations, ladders were used improperly. The most frequent ladder injuries include broken bones and head injuries. This is why it is crucial for employers to comply with ladder safety requirements set by regulatory bodies like OSHA and ANSI.
