Usually, we focus on workplace safety in this blog, but with Christmas coming up, we thought it would be a good time to remind everyone about the safety hazards that can occur at home. Many people are off of work and spending more time with family over the next few weeks. That extra time at home can lead to different hazards that you might not have thought of.
Here are a few examples:
Make sure your outdoor lights are actually meant for outdoor use.
Have you checked all of your smoke alarms in your house?
Don't overload electrical circuits or extension cords.
The infographic below comes from Creative Safety Supply, and is a great reminder of how to keep yourself and your family safe while at home for the holidays.
