You Should Know the Number of Steps
Do you have stairs in or around your home or workplace? For your safety, know the number of steps in each set of stairs.
According to the American Journal of Emergency Medicine, more than 1 million people per year are treated in emergency departments for stair-related injuries.
You’ll be safer on stairs when you know how many steps you have to take to reach the top or bottom of the staircase.
This is especially important if you are in the dark, carrying something (such as a child, pet, laundry basket, large box, etc.) or for any other reason can’t see your feet or the steps.
It’s great that so many people are counting steps for fitness these days. Go one step further—count and remember the steps on your stairways to reduce your risk of falling.
