Halloween Health and Safety Tips

S Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible.


A Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.


F Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.


E Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the

amount of treats you eat.


H Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. Always

WALK and don’t run from house to house.


A Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible

skin and eye irritation.


L Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever

possible.

L Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses.


O Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic

to stay safe.


W Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.

E Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.

E Enjoy your treats in moderation.

N Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.
