If you’re going to hang your own holiday lights or decorations out of doors, then be aware of how many people fall from ladders in the pursuit of a little holiday cheer.
If you’re going to climb a ladder, check your ladder before you use it. If there are bent or broken rungs, replace the ladder before you climb.
Don’t climb a ladder alone. Have someone nearby who can steady the ladder while you climb.
Don’t let your kids or a helper climb the ladder with you. Believe it or not, having more than one person on a ladder is a common cause of falls from ladders.
