Safety tip for staircase

In our life journey, we have to go up and down staircase millions of times. The staircase is a potential source of accident, especially if one is going down the staircase. If one missed a step, that can involved a potentially serious accident. This is especially for the elderly, particularly post-menopausal women whose bones may be more brittle.

All staircase should have bannister or railing for one to hold on to when climbing up or down the staircase. When climbing the stairs, always have at least one hand free to grab the bannister if one trips or lose balance especially when climbing down the staircase. Never use both hands to hold things when climbing the staircase for if you trip, you will not be able to grab the railing to steady yourself.
