Candle Safety Week

Monday 23 November 2015 - Sunday 29th November 2015

All Day


Candles can provide ambiance and relaxation but they can also be very dangerous.

If you use candles, make sure you use them safely. Here are a few tips:

  • Do not place candles near flammable material
  • Make sure they are fully extinguished before leaving the room; heat travels and can easily set things alight
  • Always use sturdy holders and do not leave lit candles unattended as they can easily be knocked over by children, pets or even the wind
  • Keep torches handy in case of a power cut, they are much safer than candles
