Think safety when decorating the office for Christmas

Office Christmas Decorating Tips

Christmas is a time for cheer, eating too many minced pies and showing people how much you appreciate them. And the workplace should be no different.

Whilst decorating the office for Christmas can be a fun and festive activity, it’s important to bear in mind health and safety when decorating the office in tinsel, glitter and baubles.

By following the simple safety precautions below, you can ensure that your employees enjoy the festive period and your business is protected from unwanted hazards:

  • Before use, check anything electrical for signs of damage. If they are damaged do not use them
  • Keep all fire exits clear and accessible
  • Read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions
  • LED lights are the best to use. They use much less energy and do not give off heat
  • Never overload sockets or extension leads
  • Avoid trailing cables and leads across walkways and access points
  • Do not stand on unstable furniture to hang decorations
  • Always turn off Christmas tree lights when staff go home

By keeping these safety considerations in mind, you can create a festive and cheerful holiday atmosphere in the office while minimizing the risk of accidents or hazards. Remember that safety should always be a top priority during the holiday season.
