Safer stairs on CTV

Nearly one person in Canada dies each day because of a fall on stairs and 270 end up in the hospital. There are 3 times more falls on an 8 inch stair than on a 10 inch stair.

Alison Novak, a scientist on our team, has managed to change the national building code so that stairs in new homes must be at least 10 inches long rather than the 8 inches that used to be allowed. Alison and Geoff were featured on CTV recently.
