Trick or Treating Safety Tips Halloween

October 23, 2023

Trick or Treating Safety TipsHalloween is one of the most exciting nights of the year for your little ones. They get to dress up in costumes and spend the evening knocking on doors and getting heaps of candy. It’s a quintessential childhood experience – but as the responsible adult, you play an important role in making sure trick or treating is done safely. Here are some trick-or-treating safety tips to keep in mind so that you can make sure your kids have a safe and happy Halloween.

Make Sure Their Costumes Are Visible

Wearing a black Batman cape at dusk means that drivers will have a very hard time seeing your child as they try to cross the road. Instead, go for bright and colourful costumes or attach reflective tape to the costume. Also, your child can carry glow sticks, a flashlight or any other type of flashing device to make them more visible in the dark.

Can They Move and See Clearly?

Sometimes the trouble with masks and hooded costumes is that they restrict vision. Your child may struggle to see out of the small eye holes in the mask, which could cause them to walk into traffic or take a nasty fall. It is better to wear face paint rather than masks so that your child’s vision is not obstructed. Also, make sure that their costume doesn’t restrict their movement and make them more likely to trip and fall over such as a long skirt dragging on the ground.

Be Smart Around Strangers

Some other trick or treating safety tips are to trick or treat in a familiar neighbourhood where you know most of the people who live there. Make sure that your child knows that they should never go inside someone’s house unless they know them. Only trick or treat at well-lit houses and do not approach someone’s property if the lights are not on.

Trick or Treating Safety TipsCheck Out the Candy Before Eating

When your child arrives home with a bag filled with sweets, make sure that you give it an inspection before you let them dig in. Watch out for any items that they are allergic to, or any sweets that look like they have been tampered with or are not in their original wrapping. You mTrick or Treating Safety Tipsight want to place the Halloween candy somewhere on a high shelf so that you can dole out a reasonable amount and avoid a candy binge sugar rush and subsequent crash.

Alone or With Adults?

Children that are quite young should always trick or treat with an adult, or at least with a responsible teenage sibling or family friend. However, your older pre-teen children may be able to trick or treat in a group without an adult. You know your own child and how responsible they are – so use your judgement. When they go out you should know what neighbourhood they will be trick or treating in, they should be contactable via mobile phone and they should agree to be back by a specific time.

Another thing to add is if your child is also showcasing some symptoms of a cold or flu, it might be best for them to stay home.

If you are looking for fun things to do or wondering where to buy a costume, check out this guide to find out the latest on what’s going on in Toronto!

Keep these trick-or-treating safety tips in mind for a fun and safe Halloween!

Ways to Be Environmentally Friendly in Your Furnished Condo

Environmentally Friendly, Condo, Toronto, DelSuites

You might think that any impact you have on the environment is pretty small in the grand scheme of things – so does it really make much of a difference if you try to adjust your habits?

However, if everyone made some small adjustments then a big difference could be made. So, how can you be more environmentally friendly in your furnished condo?

Here Are Some Ways To Be More Environmentally Friendly In Your Furnished Condos

  • Open the blinds in the morning. It will let the sunlight in which will help to heat your furnished apartment in Toronto.
  • Switch to an environmentally friendly cleaner. It will ensure that fewer harsh chemicals are released into the environment and into the air you breathe. You can find one at a natural grocery store or even some of the mainstream ones – just read the labels carefully.
  • If you wash dishes in the sink under running water, you’re wasting a lot of water. Instead, fill up one tub with soapy water (look for eco-friendly bio-degradable soap) and then one with plain water for rinsing.
  • If you use a dishwasher, remember that thanks to the modern technology of most dishwashers it is no longer necessary to pre-rinse the dishes before you put them in. This saves you from wasting water – because sometimes you use more water to pre-rinse than you would for a full wash cycle.
  • When washing your clothes, try to use cold water and only wash during non-peak hours, such as 6-8 a.m. or 8-10 p.m.
  • Only run a full load in the washing machine. You use the same amount of energy to power the washing machine whether you are washing a full load of clothes or a half load.
  • Use a drying rack rather than using a clothes dryer to save energy. If it is sunny outside, put the clothes on a clothesline – they will smell amazing if you let them dry in the fresh air.
  • Did you know that energy escapes from your electronic devices, such as microwaves, televisions, video game consoles, and coffee makers, even when they are off and you are not using them? Use a power strip to plug them in and then flip the switch to the off position when these appliances are not in use.
  • When it comes to food shopping, try to buy from local farmer’s markets as much as possible. It reduces the carbon footprint because the produce doesn’t have to travel as far. Plus, it supports the local farmers and benefits the community.
  • When you get around, try to walk or take public transit rather than drive if possible. Toronto has a great public transit system that will get you anywhere in the city.

These are just a few of the ways that you can be more environmentally friendly when you are living or staying short-term in your furnished condo.  In addition, here are 5 ways to go green. These are small changes that won’t make too much of a difference to your lifestyle but when they add up they can make a big difference to the environment.

Relocating Employees – Common Mistakes Companies Make

November 1, 2022

If your company is looking to relocate employees for work, don’t make it too difficult for them. Relocating employees is a complex process and there are a lot of details that need to be taken care of. However, it’s essential that it is done right – because it can be quite a stressful experience for your employee if the move isn’t handled well.

Unfortunately, many companies drop the ball on this part of the contract, by not paying enough attention to supporting their employees during the move. Here are some mistakes that you should avoid so that you can help your employees make a seamless transition.

Common Mistakes When Relocating Employees

Not Communicating With The Employee

Do your best to keep the employee informed about everything that will happen during the move, including all of the details about where they will stay, how their belongings will be transported, and what paperwork they need to fill out when they arrive.  This will help to keep the employee in the loop and ensure that they are not confused when they arrive. Don’t assume that they will know what to expect!

Not Having a Clear Budget For Relocating Employees

Relocating an employee can be expensive, but it can be even more costly if you don’t have a clear picture of the costs. Having a budget is important, as it allows you to plan out how much you have to spend on each aspect of the relocation and accurately predict your expenses.

Remember, when making a budget it’s always a good idea to add on an extra 20% at the end, just to account for any surprises that might occur during the relocation process.

Not Helping Employees To Get Set up

There are a lot of things that your employee will need to set up when they arrive in their new location – destination orientations, school finder, settling services, legal services, temporary housing, bank account, phone number, internet, etc. Do your best to support them with this and help them to set it all up.

They will appreciate the help and it will assist them in making the transition go much more smoothly so that they can settle into their new home more easily.

Finding Unsuitable Accommodation For Employee Relocation

Another mistake that companies make when relocating employees is that they don’t put enough thought into choosing the accommodation where the employee will stay temporarily before they can move into their new home.

As a result, the employee ends up staying somewhere in an unsuitable location and without the necessary amenities.

Our apartments are a great option for employee relocation. These fully furnished apartments offer a spacious living area, bedroom, and kitchen – so that the employee can settle in and feel at home. Plus the convenient location means they won’t be far from work.
