To promote safe practices during the holidays, Kahiki put together a Halloween contest for the team. Associates were asked to submit their best ideas for keeping the kids safe during Trick-Or-Treating. This is what we came up with:
• Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and is possible use light colors.
• Have kids use flashlights or glow sticks to help them be seen by drivers.
• Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
• Look left, right and left again when crossing, keep looking as you cross.
• Put electronics devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
• Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
• Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.
• Check all candy before letting your children eat it to be sure it is safe and not tampered with.
Now that Halloween is over, how will you make Thanksgiving and Christmas safe for the family?
