Safety Tips for the Holidays
Be Alert For Slippery Surfaces
As you rush in and out of stores to finish your holiday shopping, be on the lookout for floors that may become slippery when wet. With so many shoppers flocking in and out of storefronts, certain areas – especially entrances – may become messy and slick.
Traffic increases significantly over the holidays as people travel to see friends and family. With so many more drivers on the road, the chances of roadway accidents goes up. Minimize distractions while behind the wheel, and never operate a vehicle while you are under the influence of alcohol.
Childproof Your Home
If you will have young children in your home during the holidays, it’s important to create a safe space for them to play and explore. Cover up electrical outlets, station baby gates at the top of the stairs, install baby locks on cabinets that hold hazardous substances, vacuum regularly to pick up Christmas ornament hooks and other dangerous items, and place small objects that may pose choking hazards out of reach.
Blow Out Your Candles
Candles are a beautiful symbol of Christmas time, but they can pose a very real fire hazard if left unattended. Only light candles if you are going to remain in the room(s) where they are burning. Extinguish candles before going to a different part of the house, leaving your home, or going to sleep for the night.
