Benefits Over a Conventional Step Ladder

Ladder injuries are hard to track and some result in death. The insurance industry has estimated over 600 people a year die in North America from ladder falls and over 240,000 people are taken to emergency rooms with serious injuries. With the proper use of the SafeTec platforms we can practically eliminate these deaths and injuries. The SafeTec Platforms are Certified, Tested, and Proven. They comply with OSHA, ANSI and CSA International Standards. Click here for our Certification Page. Click here for our Costs Of Accidents Page.
