Stay Safe Using Stairs

Posted on Posted in Stair and Railing

The use of stairs can be a hazard especially when the stairs have not been constructed according to code or if they have not been properly maintained.

Aside from inspection and maintenance, here are some tips on how to use the stairs at home and at work to avoid the danger it can pose if we don’t use it properly:


  • Hold on to the handrail.
  • Don’t run up and down the stairs.
  • Focus on the stairs and avoid distractions such as conversations or reading some material.
  • Take one step at a time.
  • Look straight ahead when using the stairs.
  • Ask for help when you need to bring something up or down the stairs.
  • For stairs outside your home, be very careful when it’s raining.
