Bottom Rung Lawsuit - Ladder Safety Hub
Missing the bottom rung causes close to 20 percent of all ladder-related accidents. In fact, people have even filed lawsuits over the issue. Luckily, the Ground Cue™ bottom rung indicator can help prevent these accidents. Check out our blog post for more about the Ground Cue and how it is helping reduce ladder-related accidents and injuries.
On a 22' multipurpose ladder, just one inch of unlevel ground at the bottom leads to being 8.6 inches off center at the top. Being so far outside your center of gravity can lead to a catastrophic side-tip fall, which can cause severe injuries or even death. Make sure your ladder is level before you climb. #laddersafety

This is an underestimation as not every ladder accident is reported. 365 ladder deaths a year is unacceptable. Help us as we strive to #BreakTheStatistic of ladder injuries and fatalities by encouraging #laddersafety! Because the only acceptable number is 0.
