Decorating for the holidays? Put on your running shoes.
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.
