10 hazards you haven’t thought of at home
Nearly half of all falling deaths occur on steps and stairways. Keeping the steps clutter-free seems obvious, but take a look at your own steps. Who hasn’t set something on a step “temporarily” with a plan to take it down (or up) on the next trip? It’s easy to use the steps as semipermanent storage, but it’s a very dangerous habit. Odds are that eventually someone is going to trip over something and break an arm or leg (or neck). Don’t set anything on the steps. Ever.
