The current ladder usage for construction professionals present a number of challenges. Angling a ladder correctly involves reading, understanding and correctly following the instructions described on the stickers attached to the ladder. Not only are such instructions difficult to grasp and correctly apply, but since they are quite complex and often ignored, many operators neglect them thus putting themselves in danger of falling. No wonder ladder falls account for the 2nd cause of dismemberment and death in the construction industry. This presents a great deal of risk to the construction worker, and financial liability to the business that employs him.
The professionals behind the LSL755 invention have the added challenge of competing with all the other inventors who have filed for patent, but were not able to attract the attention of the ladder manufacturers or that of the 3rd party equipment and resources for the industry.
