Deck the halls with electrical safety
Plug outdoor electrical cords into a GFCI outlet to prevent electrical shock. And reduce fire hazards by using an extension cord rated for heavy duty outdoor use.
Keep your holidays on steady footing
Remember the 1-to-4 rule of ladder safety: For every four feet of rise, move the ladder base out one foot from the wall.
Lift your holiday spirits with good posture
When moving your holiday tree or packages, make sure to square yourself to the object, lift straight up and then pivot your whole body rather than twisting.
Avoid a dangerous slip and slide
Protect yourself from slipping on snow or ice with proper footwear, de-icing – and most of all, by taking your time.
Take time and take care this holiday season.
