ASSP’s San Diego Chapter President Steve Workman was recently featured on Good Morning San Diego KUSI-TV News to discuss ladder safety around the holidays. He explained different types of ladders and their various safety features, and offered advice to viewers who may be using ladders to decorate for the holidays. “Safety takes longer to do a job safely than just to do a shortcut and get it done,” says Workman. “But what I tell the employees and the sheriff’s department is ‘we think it’s worth it.’”
He presented newscaster Paul Rudy with the San Diego Chapter’s challenge coin for assisting in the demonstration, helping to spread the message of safety in the San Diego community.
