Dave Francis

National Safety Director

Little Giant Ladder Systems

Dave Francis has been in the ladder business for more than 30 years. As a college student, he cleaned the offices of Little Giant Ladder Systems at night and has stayed with the company ever since. Working his way up the ladder (pun intended), Dave became the Director of R&D and holds five US patents for improvements in ladder design. He is now the National Safety Director, with the sole purpose of preventing ladder accidents and hopefully saving lives by promoting ladder safety training and innovations in ladder design. Dave has provided ladder safety to companies around the US, including The Walt Disney Company, Boeing, Comcast and BP Oil. He is also the editor for www.LadderSafetyHub.com, a ladder safety blog. His goal is the same as yours, getting everyone home to their families at the end of the day. If you would like to get in touch with Dave, email him at dave@ladders.com.
