Nothing beats the look of holiday décor with the bright lights and hanging colorful figures. But be careful when decorating—slips and falls are a common cause of injury this time of year.

Whether you’re decorating your home, office, boat, or anywhere else, make sure you are wearing the right shoes. Sneakers, or any slip-resistant shoes, can help prevent falls when climbing up ladders. The holidays are prime-time for ladder related falls, which can result in broken bones or head injuries.

If someone is injured from a fall, call 9-1-1 or seek medical attention right away.
