Halloween Safety Risks

Halloween is a popular holiday for people of all ages and backgrounds. You can create fun, creative costumes for trick-or-treating, festivals, parades, concerts and parties. These Halloween events often involve various forms of revelry and entertainment until the early hours of the morning. However, there are inherent dangers present on such a busy holiday. The risk of personal injury is high for a number of reasons, including:

  • High alcohol consumption rates
  • Careless behavior
  • Large crowds

You should always maintain awareness of your surroundings at these events and note the presence of law enforcement or crowd control personnel. Also, be wary of entering venues that have few or hidden exits, especially in rooms that are filled to capacity.

Halloween Costume Dangers

Also dangerous are the Halloween costumes themselves. You may find a spectacular and impressive costume but fail to realize how dangerous the materials could be. Common costume perils include:

  • Vision-obstructing masks
  • Flammable materials
  • Flammable hair products
  • Sharp accessories or weapons

You can make a great costume and at the same time reduce the risk of personal injury if you are mindful of costume materials. Face make-up rather than a mask is one safer costume decision you could try.
