How to Prevent Work Injuries during Halloween

Halloween parties can be frightfully fun if everyone remembers not to go overboard. Even though your employer allows you to have a gathering, it is important to be responsible when it comes to planning the event and what activities are allowed to take place.

Here are some tips to prevent work injuries during Halloween parties:

Avoid Anything That Blocks Vision

Avoid wearing masks or anything that will obstruct a person’s vision. A clear line of sight will prevent you from tripping over furniture or anything that may have been dropped on the floor. Don’t hang things that drop low from the ceiling. Having to duck to avoid running into something may cause a person to hit their head on something else or run into another person.

Limit Horseplay

Limit the rough-housing and horseplay. Avoid games that call for an excessive amount of physical activity that could result in a fall or other injury. Many people get a little too excited during games, especially if alcohol is involved. Don’t let things get out of hand. If possible, choose games that don’t involve physical participation.

Don’t Trick, Treat!

Refrain from playing pranks on co-workers. Most practical jokes are harmless, but others can get out of hand rather quickly, especially if the person being pranked is not a good sport. Instead of pulling pranks and playing tricks, treat each other instead!

Respect Company Property

Respect company property and avoid using items in ways other than what they were intended. Make sure things are cleaned up and returned to their proper place when the party is over. This will prevent someone coming into the room and tripping or falling over debris that was left behind.

Avoid workplace injuries by using common sense and respecting your employer’s property. A few simple steps can prevent injuries and lost time at work.
