I have fallen off a chair when adjusting the tops of curtains but luckily I did not hurt myself in the fall. Now I take the time to use step ladders as I know it is just not worth the risk.

@ 2uesday, far too many folks suffer injuries due to taking safety concerns lightly. For instance, using a chair to reach something in the cupboard, change a light bulb or cleaning and dusting around the home. All it takes is one misstep, a slip, or trying to reach something when a fall occurs.
I believe it a good thing, everyone just take a few extra minutes to consider. The emotional and medical cost, not to mention work loss, and rehabilitation costs do far exceed the cost and effort of doing things safely.
No one wants to break a hip, dislocate a shoulder, suffer a head injury, or do they.
Be safe, and work smarter. Mike :)

It is worth having one of these on hand for odd jobs that need doing, it saves the temptation of climbing on something like a chair to reach something.

@katiem2 you are welcome, take care cleaning your cieling fans.

Good to know, I was just considering a ladder that will reach my ceiling fans in two rooms both with vaulted ceilings. These fans are way up there but need a good dusting all the same. Thanks for the tips. :)K
