The Ladder Association has appointed Paul Bruton of WernerCo to the role of organisation chairman.
With 45 years of experience in the ladder industry, Paul has taken over from Martin Brookes of Bratts Ladders, following a successful three years in the position.
In his new role as chairman, Paul aims to move the Association forward in its plans to promote the safe use of ladders on site and focus on ensuring safety is a priority for manufacturers.
Paul commented, “My entire career has been spent in the ladder industry as I started out within the family business so I’m pleased to be taking on the reigns of the Ladder Association. I am honoured to be taking over the role from Martin who has worked incredibly hard and with such passion to support members in shaping the industry.
“Over the next three years, my hope is that I provide the support required to continue the growth of the Association. Safety within the industry is a huge priority. Training, advocacy and giving a voice to our members is what being a part of the Association is all about, and I’m committed to promoting that vision.”
The Ladder Association has recently launched ‘Get a Grip on Ladder Safety’, a campaign to highlight issues faced across the various construction industry sectors. It is campaigns such as these that Paul will continue to support, with the aim of shaping new standards in the industry.
