How do I prevent slipping on hardwood stairs?


I have a long flight of stairs to climb (high ceilings so the 2nd floor is higher than the average home) that is slippery and made of hardwood. Any suggestions to prevent slipping and sliding and breaking bones? I don't want to replace the hardwood but thought of putting in some carpeting in the middle of the steps. How do I go about doing this or are there any other suggestions? Thank you.
