Avoid Accidental Falls

Walk through your garage alert to potential slipping or tripping hazards. Keep in mind the following four rules:

  1. Remove all objects from stairs, steps, landings and floors.
  2. Tuck electrical cords into the appliance, where possible, or around external prongs – but always out of walkways.
  3. Attach and secure banisters or hand rails on both sides.
  4. Keep the floor clean. Promptly clean up grease, water and other spills.
