Stairs and Decks Safety Tips

It’s nice to have friends and family visit so make it safe for them to come in a say hello by keeping all stairways, rails and decks well maintained and clear of any personal property. Here are some more guidelines to make sure everyone is safe at home:

  • Maintain interior stairs and railings

  • Clear your walkways and driveways of leaves, ice and snow.

  • Use salt or sand to add traction to walkways in winter weather

  • Clear of clothing, toys and other items that could cause a friend or family to trip and fall.
