Halloween safety campaign
The Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) is raising public awareness of the dangers surrounding Halloween.
The resources below are designed to inform consumers of the need to buy fancy dress and Halloween costumes from legitimate sources, and check costumes carry appropriate safety labels. Consumers must be aware of the potential dangers that come with fancy dress clothing, especially involving children and open flames.
The key messages to remember are:
- Keep children in fancy dress away from naked flames
- Always buy from legitimate sellers and check labelling for safety markings, such as CE markings
Your involvement in sharing these resources will help ensure members of the public are educated on the dangers that come with Halloween costumes and are able to enjoy the spooky holiday safely.
