To mark the beginning of National Safety Month, JLG will be holding a contest at www.liftpod.com to award a LiftPod portable aerial work platform to one deserving winner. The contest is free and open to any worker or manager who uses a ladder or elevated work platform for jobs done at heights. The contest begins on June 1, 2009 and runs through June 30, 2009. JLG will also be sharing its market research on safety preferences in the workplace on the LiftPod Web site. The LiftPod was designed as a replacement for the ladder, providing workers with a 14-ft. working height, the ability to work with both hands and the convenience of operation using a common 18-volt drill or optional power pack.
