It’s that time of year again when people are putting up Christmas decorations and hanging Christmas lights. This means hauling out the ladder.
If you don’t use a ladder often, you may be using the ladder incorrectly. Did you know that in the U.S. each year there are 160,000 falls and 300 deaths due to incorrect use? Please don’t become a statistic! Stay safe and hire a professional to hang your lights. (The same goes for second story windows — hire a professional to clean them.)
If you have to hang them yourself, spend a few minutes to watch this ladder safety video from the American Ladder Institute. It could save your life.
