We received a sobering message from a customer looking at our caged fixed ladders today:
“My dad fell off of the roof to his death in June while trying to come down the ladder he had rested on the side of the building. I believe his foot got caught in the rope. If he had had one of these ladders this would not have happened.”
Stay safe out there everyone. I know that the above was just a random accident but if there is the chance that you can prevent those, especially after hearing about what can happen, why wouldn’t you? Taking precautions and doing things the safe and right way may take a little longer or cost a little more, but going home to our loved ones at the end of the day is worth any price.
Our sincere condolences are with this customer and their family and hopefully sharing this story will cause someone else to take a moment to look around and make sure they are taking all necessary safety precautions. If you are unsure if you are doing something right, ask someone.
With a little help we can all make it home safe tonight.
