Holiday Ornamenting Safety Tips from Security Specialists

Don’t Forget – Think Safety First This Holiday Season!

At this time of year, holiday ornamenting safety should be top of mind for everyone. While it’s easy to forget about safety when, throughout America, families are starting to prepare and ornament their homes and trees for the holidays, it’s important to remember basic safety and security practices to ensure a happy holiday season. Before starting to put up decorations, Security Specialists urges you to incorporate some basic holiday ornamenting safety precautions when preparing for the holidays.

  • Never stand on chairs or other furniture as this is an accident waiting to happen
  • Always use a proper step ladder when reaching to place decorations in higher locations
  • If your decorating and ornamenting includes incorporating lights, make sure there are no broken sockets, loose connections, exposed or frayed wires.
  • Decorate the tree with your kids in mind; always move ornaments that are breakable or have metal hooks toward the top.
  • Make sure floors and outside paths are clear so no one trips on decorations or light strands.
  • Plants can be an integral part of your holiday decorating, but keep in mind that some are poisonous (including some Poinsettias). Always use caution with plants and keep any that are poisonous out of the reach of children or pets.
  • When spraying artificial snow on your tree and wreaths, make sure you follow directions carefully as the spray can irritate your mucous membranes and lungs if inhaled.
  • While beautiful to look at, “angel hair” is made from spun glass which can irritate your eyes and skin. Always wear gloves and use caution if you choose to decorate with angel hair.
