Halloween Health and Safety Tips


With Halloween and trick-or-treating right around the corner, HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital and Prevea Health, encourage everyone to make the health and safety of their family a priority.

Below, are some tips to ensure a “SAFE HALLOWEEN.”

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, or wear a blinking light to help drivers see you.
E – Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them.

H – Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you.
A – Always test makeup in a small area first. Remove before bedtime to prevent skin and eye irritation.
L – Look both ways before crossing the street, use crosswalks where possible and walk, don’t run!
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.
W – Wear well-fitting masks, costumes and shoes to avoid blocked visions, trips and falls.
E – Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.
E – Enter a home only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit homes; never stop at a dark house.
N – Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.
