The stairs has long been a source of potential danger for humans and those that are mobility challenged, like sufferers of osteoarthritis, are at increased risk. To help reduce this risk there are several things that can be done by the stair user. One of the most important things to remember is that it is important to pay attention when you are climbing up and down the stairs Stairs can come in different shapes and sizes, so it is important to pay attention to the width and depth of the steps. It has been shown that a major factor in many stair accidents is as a result of the person on the stairs being distracted by environmental factors. It is important to maintain a well lit stairway and to pay attention as you ascend or descend the stairs.
Safety in using stairs should be the main concern when planning the stairs. Its form and design should be rooted on safety. Beauty is useless without proper function.

A good way to ensure its safety is to start at the beginning of the installation of the stairs itself. A stair’s foundation lies on the quality of the stair parts used. Therefore, investing in good quality stair parts is a must for ever homeowner and stair builder.
