Halloween is almost here, so it's a good time to discuss potential injury concerns at Halloween.
For one, Halloween costumes can be a major cause of injury. Halloween costumes can be made with very cheap fabric. These are costumes that are not made for daily use, so it should come as no surprise that sometimes, there isn't a great deal of attention paid to the safety of these outfits.
Often, the glitter you see on the costumes is sprayed on instead of sewed on. This spray-on glitter can be flammable. This is a huge problem if there are crowds with people smoking or lighting cigarettes, and potentially near jack-o-lanterns as well.
Of course, flammable Halloween costumes aren't the only concern when talking about Halloween costumes. Masks can pose potential dangers for children, especially small children. Masks pose a suffocation risk. They also pose visibility risks for children.
