In 2012, there were reports of more than 15,000 injuries related to holiday decorations in the US. Other safety tests for trees and decor include stability testing, ensuring a tree won’t tip over when placed on a six degree incline, tests that ensure no sharp points or edges exist, and tests that check for small pieces that could become dislodged and swallowed. According to a 2014 study performed on 69 holiday decoration products, two third contained chemicals like lead and phthalates and other potentially hazardous chemicals.
