Halloween Safety Tips From Honolulu’s Leading Orthopedists, Honolulu, Hawaii

Halloween is a festive time of year for both kids and adults. However, since many people stay out late for parties and trick-or-treating, accidents are bound to happen. That’s why the orthopedists at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health say it's extremely important to remain safe while having fun.

Serving Honolulu, HI, with exceptional medical and surgical care, their orthopedists list some important Halloween safety tips to make the celebration fun and accident-free:

  • Keep Your Home Safe: Remove tripping hazards from your yard like loose bikes, extension cords, and hoses. It’s also a good idea to keep your front yard well-lit.

  • Observe Road Safety Rules: Always follow street signs to avoid road accidents. If you’re out walking around, don’t use your electronic device when walking, and keep an eye out for fast-approaching cars. Walk on sidewalks and cross only on pedestrian lanes to avoid getting hit by vehicles.

  • orthopedistDon’t Stay Out Late: Children should not stay out too late without the supervision of an adult. If kids are going out in a group, find out where they’re going and set a curfew. Also, make sure they’re equipped with flashlights or glow sticks.

  • Make Costumes Safe: While masks look great, they can obstruct your kid’s vision. Using face paint is a creative and smart choice when dressing up your kids for Halloween. Make sure the costume is the right size and length to prevent tripping. Adding reflective strips to their costume is also a good idea. This way, motorists can easily see them on the streets.

  • Drive Safely: Don’t ever drink and drive — ever. You should also be on the lookout for pedestrians and kids running around outside. Before getting in the car, check that your headlights are working so you can easily spot pedestrians.
