We wanted to focus on ladder safety and preventing ladder-related injuries. Because falling from a ladder can cause a major injury or even death. Every year, 44 Canadians are killed by falls from ladders. We created this billboard to get people thinking that a little extra reach on a ladder can have big consequences.
Instead of showing the aftermath of an injury, this billboard shows the moment before an injury might happen. We placed a dummy that looks like a painter standing on a ladder. He is precariously leaning on the ladder rung while he reaches away to paint the billboard. The headline on the billboard reads: Before reaching for that extra foot and a half, have a word with yourself.
Instead of showing the aftermath of an injury, this billboard shows the moment before an injury might happen. Whether you’re using a ladder for painting or cleaning eaves troughs, think before you reach. It could save you and your loved ones from injury.
