Safety Tips for Diwali !!!

 

Diwali, the beautiful festival of lights, happiness and celebration is just around the corner. Celebrating the festivities with your family and friends is something everyone enjoys. However we also see and hear a lot of accidents related to Diwali crackers. Most of these unfortunate accidents can be prevented by following some basic tips.

 

TOPSLINE being your safety partner share some preventive measures so that you can celebrate a safe and joyful Diwali.

 

Clothes:

•     Bursting firecrackers is something everyone including children and adults enjoy. To avoid any accident with fire it is recommended that you wear cotton clothes and stay away from synthetic material.

Quality of Crackers:

•     You must purchase firecrackers from legal manufacturers and ensure that you go through the instructions before actually bursting them. Good quality firecrackers reduce the risk of a dangerous mishap.

Instructing Children:

•     Before taking your children out in the open to burst crackers, it is highly important for you to instruct them about the usage of firecrackers and educate them about the appropriate ways to do so. Supervising them while they are having a fun time with crackers is of utmost importance.

Fire Extinguisher:

•     Having a fire extinguisher in close proximity to the area where you are bursting firecrackers is very essential. Even a bucket of water or sand would be useful to tackle an unexpected fire.

Closed Areas:

•     It is critical to note that you must never burst firecrackers in a closed area. Doing so can lead to a massive hazard in case of fire breaking.

First Aid Kit:

•     A first aid kit should be a handy while you or your kids are enjoying the fireworks. In case there is a minor injury, it can be treated immediately at home.

Discarding Used Fireworks:

•     Dispose of the used firecrackers immediately and carefully. You can either put it in a bucket full of water or put sand on them in order to put out its heat.

Candles and Diyas:

•     Diwali is all about beautiful candles and diyas spreading their light and happiness. However, keeping lit candles and diyas at home can cost you dearly at times. You must make sure that there aren’t any curtains or inflammable materials close to them.

Pet Safety:

•     Pets are a part of the family for animal lovers. But Diwali can be an agonizing time for the animals due to the extreme noise all around. Try to sensitize your pet to the noises by playing similar sounds beforehand. Also, try not to leave your pet alone and do keep them away from firecrackers.

Sensitivity:

•     It is important to celebrate festivals with utmost sensitivity and care. Using firecrackers that do not create a lot of noise can be the first step towards being sensitive to your fellow neighbors and friends. Too much noise pollution can be harmful for everyone, especially senior citizens.

 

TOPSLINE would always stand to support and protect you and we wish you a safe festive season.

Tips for saving water this Holi

 

 

Measure the quantity of water you want to use to play with and store it. Stick to that limit.

 

Resist the temptation of going overboard.

 

Play with dry organic colors.

 

Use natural and organic colors when you play. They wash off easily.

 

Avoid playing with balloons.

 

Go for a bath only when you are done. Bathing repeatedly is sure water wastage.

 

Play in a separate area or the garden. Getting the whole house dirty will simply lead to more water usage.

 

Wear old dark colored clothes, so cleaning them does not need too much water and effort.

 

Apply oil on your hair before stepping out to play. This will provide a protective layer over your hair. Even if you do end up getting colour in your tresses, a single wash can be enough to make your hair colour-free.

 

Shield yourself with some moisturizing lotion to prevent your skin from staining. It will keep your skin hydrated and prevent it from harmful effects of colour.

 

Coat your nails with nail paint. It is the most basic form of nail care and can go a long away in keeping your nails from soiling with colors. Your nails will stay clean just like before playing Holi.
