The NFBA is the only national trade association that represents post-frame industry professionals. The association is the country's primary source of post-frame building resources, research, networking, news and education.
ANSI A14 Ladder Safety Committee
The Ladder Safety Committee met on April 23 and approved the A14.8 ladder accessories standard. This is the first time it has ever been released. The new standard covers all ladder accessories. There were no other standard approvals, although several of the standards are in the revision process. We are unaware of any significant impact that any of the current revisions would have on NFBA.
