by , 31 October 2014
If your workplace is a dangerous place, the thought of ghosts and goblins probably doesn't scare you.

But this doesn't mean you shouldn't take a little extra care on Halloween. After all, when there are festivities happening, people tend to act recklessly.

And your employees might do something silly that could cause serious accidents.

To ensure your employees don't end up as 'headless horsemen', use these three safety tips...


Prevent Halloween accidents with these three safety tips

Tip #1: Don't let your employees dress up during work hours
If your employees have to work with tools or around machinery, a fancy costume could be seriously dangerous. Put a rule in place saying anyone that comes to work in a costume will have to go home and change.
