Wishing all colleagues, clients and friends a safe and happy 4th of July

Jul 03, 2018

Independence Day, referred to as the “4th of July” is one of the most celebrated holidays in the United States and celebrates the day the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress in 1776.

As families and friends, gather to celebrate, we’d like to help those attending fireworks displays or using fireworks to mark the day to safely use fireworks. Safety is a core company value at LotusWorks, we’re reputed for our excellent safety standards and are proud of the safety culture we’re constantly nurturing, within the company and at our client facilities too.

Our Health and Safety team would like to remind people of the following safety tips during this 4th of July celebrations.

Tips when using fireworks:

  • Understand  all local laws regarding the use of fireworks
  • Read the cautionary labels and performance descriptions before igniting your fireworks
  • Obvious but a responsible adult should supervise all firework activities
  • Never give fireworks to children
  • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks
  • Light one firework at a time and quickly move away
  • Use fireworks OUTDOORS in a clear area; away from people, buildings, and vehicles
  • Keep a bucket of water and water hose nearby
  • Never carry fireworks in your pocket

And not forgetting the safety of your pets:

  • Don’t bring your pets to a fireworks display, even a small one
  • If fireworks are being used near your home, put your pet in a safe place to avoid exposure to the sound
