Another way to avoid injuries when using stairs is to have a regular maintenance check-up. This only means that the stairs and its parts should be routinely checked to see if anything is missing, broken, and in need of repair. Poor maintenance of stairs can lead to all kinds of stair injuries. A missing baluster could be a potential danger for small children using the stairs, they could easily fall through the space where the missing baluster is located. A wobbly hand rail could spell disaster for those who hugely rely on them for balance and support, especially for the elderly, handicapped, and even small children. A loose stair tread is a major site for trips and mishaps. Anything found to be in need of repair should be fixed immediately. Anything beyond repair should be replaced and dealt with as soon as you can. All of these may seem tedious work, but will be well worth it. Always remember that having your stair injuries treated is more expensive than replacing or fixing your broken stairs.
It is also essential that you keep the stairs clear of obstacles that could obstruct your travel up and down the stairs It is easy to set something down on the stairs but this moment or two that you save can easily result in an accidental fall and injury. It is essential that you do not place objects on the stairs or use it as a storage area. While generally those who are younger are less likely to hurt themselves on the stairs many accidents among children are as a result of playing on the stairs The stairs should not be used as a jungle gym or as a play area. They are not meant to run up or slid down and while this might sound appealing to a young child, it can quickly end in tragedy. If you have small children than a safety gate should be used at the top and bottom of the stairs.
