Using a ladder improperly and reaching just a little too far can cause serious injuries. This is especially true around the holidays, when it comes time to put up the Christmas lights. In fact, 44 Canadians are killed every year by falls from ladders. So as a reminder to think before hanging Christmas lights, we created a billboard that highlights the potential danger head on.

Most of us don’t ever think we’ll be injured during the holiday season. But even amidst the joy of the holidays, bad things can happen. We need to be mindful of the risks around us. By adjusting our mindsets, we can all enjoy a safe holiday. For more information on proper ladder usage, take a moment to review this ladder safety diagram.
