2023 National Ladder Safety Month

Each year, tens of thousands of injuries, and hundreds of deaths, are caused by ladder misuse. Understanding the different types of ladders as well as safe ladder practices are key to preventing falls and other potential injuries. 

We welcome you to join us in learning about critical guidelines of ladder use, raising awareness on safe ladder use, and participating in scheduled events throughout the month.

“I did not go to college, but I made the right decision for me and my kids who were only 6 and 8. My Union provides me with pensions, a health insurance, and a rewarding career. I would never walk away from that.”

"The BAC gave me a life. I didn't have a life when I was working 80 hours a week, not being able to afford anything, not being able to go out, take a vacation, have a break, and certainly not able to retire."

"There is something in BAC to really help you advance your career. The union is an amazing thing. You have access to continuing education as well as traditional training that is all paid for. You don’t have to pay anything out of pocket. The wages are good, the benefits and the retirement are also great."
