Easter Safety Tips for Workplace Safety, for Home, and for your Pets

United Alliance Services would like to wish you, your family, and your employees, a safe and joyous Easter. The following Easter safety tips can be applied in the workplace and at home and even for your pets.

Easter Safety Tips for the kids at work or home:

Be sure that Easter toys and dolls (such as bunnies, chicks, etc) are free of choking hazards. Pieces that can be removed from a doll or toy pose a potential choking danger to small children.
In order to prevent choking, do not give small candies or chocolates to children under 5 years of age.
Chocolate bunnies are an Easter tradition; however, be very careful when giving such gifts to children who have peanut or nut allergies. Make sure you read the label of ingredients, as many chocolates, although said to be “pure chocolate”, may have been in contact with nuts or peanuts during preparation or packaging.

It would not be Easter with eggs, here a few safety tips for home or if you bring your eggs to workplace:

Eggs are a potentially hazardous food, in the same category as meat, poultry, fish, and milk. In other words, they are capable of supporting the rapid growth of disease-causing bacteria like Salmonella. After boiling eggs for Easter decorating/painting, they must be kept refrigerated to avoid bacterial growth.
Never leave raw eggs, in any form, at room temperature for more than 2 hours. Don’t eat or cook with cracked eggs or eggs that have not been refrigerated for more than two hours.
Hard-boiled Easter (decorated) eggs left in room temperature for many hours or days as a decoration or table centerpiece should be discarded and not eaten.
Use only clean, unbroken eggs. Discard dirty or broken eggs. When you boil your eggs, make sure the water is hot (185-190 degrees F). Cool your eggs in cold water or just in the air.
Cleanliness of hands, utensils, and work surfaces is essential in preventing the spread of bacteria. Always wash your hands when handling your eggs, especially between cooking, cooling and dyeing. Wash hands again, along with all utensils, equipment, and counter tops that have been in contact with any raw food before preparing other foods.

Easter is not just for people! Pets are part of the family. Here a few safety tips when it comes to our loyal companions:

Easter and spring are a great time of year to get outside after a long winter and enjoy the budding flowers and fresh air. For people who celebrate Easter with chocolate goodies and Easter egg hunts, there are some tips to keep in mind to keep your pets safe.

As with other holidays and celebrations, keeping chocolate way from pets is a must. For example, for a 10 pound dog, about 10 ounces of milk chocolate, 3 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate, or just one ounce of baking chocolate could be lethal.
Keep an eye out for spring flower mixes and bouquets. Many of those plants are poisonous to all types of animals, including reptiles.
Beware of plastic grass used for stuffing Easter baskets. This filling is not digestible and can cause intestinal damage if consumed by your pets.
If you create an Easter egg hunt in your backyard, make sure to get all the hardboiled eggs out of their hiding places. If left outside, the egg could rot and then be eaten by your pet. To guarantee this doesn’t happen, substitute real eggs with plastic ones or draw a map of where you’ve hidden them so you can double check they’ve been found.

Have a safe holiday!  For more information on the services and products provided by United Alliance Services please visit us at www.unitedallianceservices.com or give us a call at 877-399-1698.
