    As the holidays approach, the Office of Environmental Health and Safety wants to remind the University community of some decorating “dos and don’ts”:

    Do use UL-listed decorative lights, decorations, and ornaments.

    Do use artificial holiday trees that are fire-resistant and place indoor trees away from traffic; do not block doorways.

    Do unplug all holiday lights when you leave the office for the day.

    Do remove all decorations, displays, lights and/or ornaments after the holiday event or prior to the University’s annual holiday closure.

    Do not use decorative sprays or hang decorative materials (lights, ornaments, etc.) on any fire protection equipment (fire extinguishers, sprinkler heads, smoke detectors, fire alarm pull boxes, etc.), on or near exits or emergency lights. Also, do not place them in any manner that could present a fall or trip hazard, or impede egress.

    Do not bring or burn candles, incense sticks and/or other related devices/accessories.
