Finding a perfect Halloween costume does not have to be stressful and pricey. Get creative inspiration from PK Safety! But first, here are some safety tips to remind you that safety should be your number one priority anytime, especially during the hectic holiday season.
- Select costumes made from flame-resistant and flame-retardant materials;
- Always use safety-approved electrical lights and decorations;
- Carefully inspect decorations and discard the damaged ones: any cracked or bare wires may cause a fire or an electric shock;
- Make sure the electrical decorations you use outdoors are labeled as being suitable for outdoor use;
- Instead of using real flame candles, use battery-operated ones to light your jack-o-lanterns, outdoor walk paths, and displays;
- To prevent electric shock, always plug your outdoor decorations into circuits protected by a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter, and never staple or nail light strings or extension cords;
- Keep electrical cords out of doorways and walkways to eliminate tripping hazards;
- Always turn off your electrical decorations and put out open flames before going to bed or leaving your home.
