There are a few safety tips to keep in mind when decorating for the holidays.

A number of issues can be caused by holiday lights, help keep your business safe by taking the proper precautions when installing Christmas lights. Your trusted lighting company in Mid-Missouri is here to help keep everyone in and around your commercial space safe this holiday season.

Look over Lights

Before hanging up lights on the exterior of your building or decorating a Christmas tree inside your office, inspect the light stands. Ensure there is no damage to the cord and that all lights are properly working, before installing the strand of lights. This can help catch an electrical issue before it arises and save you a little frustration, if the lights do not work to begin with.

Don’t overload an outlet

Ensure the outlet you are plugging into can handle the additional pull of the Christmas lights you wish to illuminate. You do not want to overload an outlet, causing a breaker to flip off. This can cause an electrical hazard as well as slow production of your employees, if the electricity goes out.  

Secure Extension Cords

If you use extension cords for Christmas lights around your commercial building, ensure the cords are secure. Do not place cords in places where they can be pinched, like under a rug or through a door or window. To prevent a tripping hazard, ensure all extension cords are secured.

Use Safety to Install and Remove

When decorating your business with Christmas lights, ensure the proper safety protocol is being used. If you or an employee needs to reach an elevated surface for the lights, use a stable step stool or ladder to reach. Never lean or reach when hanging lights up on a ladder. After the holidays, remember to use the same precaution when climbing a ladder to remove the lights.
