Safety during the winter holiday season in Southern California presents a number of different challenges than it does in many other parts of the country. After all, “winter” is a relative term in the Inland Empire and the Desert Communities. We’ll experience some cooler days and perhaps cold nights, as well as some rain, and wearing light jackets outside might be necessary. But since we don’t receive snow and freezing cold days, we don’t have many concerns about dangers from slick roads and pavements, or worries about letting our pets outside.
Actually, our #1 safety concern during the holidays is ladder safety! Each year, more than 164,000 people in the U.S. are treated in emergency rooms because of improper use of a ladder. Unless you’re someone who uses a ladder a part of your regular job, you probably only use the ladder extensively around the holidays for interior and exterior decorating. Our HVAC team is experienced with ladder use, so here are some tips for using your ladder safely. That way you’ll spend your holidays at home with your family, and not at the hospital!
