Itasca, Illinois-based ladders and fall protection equipment manufacturer Werner Co. plans to train 50,000 people nationwide through 300 safety training events in 2023, the company announced May 1. Werner is nearly doubling its number of safety training events compared to a year ago in support of the Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s (OSHA) National Safety Stand-Down Initiative, according to a news release.

The 10th annual OSHA National Safety Stand-Down event is scheduled from May 1-5, 2023, and encourages workplaces to discuss safety, potential fall hazards and the importance of fall prevention. The Safety Stand-Down initiative lasts through the entire month of May and includes access to free webinars and training content for any professional that is interested.

“Our every-day commitment to safety goes far beyond the month of May,” Werner National Safety Training Manager Chad Lingerfelt said in the release. “Because fall prevention and fall safety are such an important part of our mission, we will always focus on the education of end-users, general contractors, Safety Directors and any other person that can help prevent an accident.”

Both in-person and online Werner events are planned for the entire month of May as members of the 36-person National Jobsite Safety and Security Team will be traveling the U.S. to lead five levels of fall protection and ladder safety training sessions, according to the release.
