THE WHITE PAPER

Of course, other work areas can be affected by holiday
activities, too. For instance, a study by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) focused on cases of holiday
falls "when decorating or related activities (e.g., stringing and
removing outdoor lights)" between Nov. 1 and Jan. 1.2 There
may be some critical readers who are wondering how the CDC
report defined a holiday fall injury and case. I'm glad that you
asked that question, and for the sake of scientific transparency,
here is the answer: "A fall-related injury was defined as one
received when a person descended because of the force
of gravity and struck a surface at the same or lower level. A
case was defined as an unintentional fall-related injury that
occurred to a person during the holiday season and included
a product description (e.g., holiday lights) or a brief narrative
in the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System-All Injury
Program (NEISS-AIP) database that listed decorating or a
related activity as contributing to the injury." Some outcomes
of the study that I found interesting are as follows:
* Approximately 62 percent of those injured were aged 20-49
years;
* Approximately 43 percent of injuries were caused by falls
from ladders;

Hopefully, the above outcomes of the study will generate
some conversations around the office coffee pot or holiday
celebration events. Holidays are special times for sharing,
laughing and stepping back to reflect on life at a more leisurely
pace. Regardless of our favorite holidays, we'll enjoy them
better after having performed our respective jobs in a safe
manner, without injury or danger to health. Happy holidays!
