It’s the Spookiest Time of Year!

Whether you enjoy the ambiance, the snacks, and candy, or the ingenious costumes, Halloween is, without a doubt, one of the most festive office holidays.

For many workplaces, decorating for holidays like Halloween is a task that must be completed on a limited budget. Those in charge of planning will often need to find innovative ways to save money while still providing an enjoyable, colorful, fun environment for coworkers.

You’ve probably got a few of these stashed away in the closet of your home. Skeletons and spooky props are an inventive way of dressing your office up without breaking the bank.

4. Lighting

LED candles and light strips are a fantastic way of making a statement without damaging the party budget. Most LED sets can be purchased for under $10 and feature a variety of modes and colors that can really accent your haunted office!

There are many affordable window decorations that you can buy to transform your windows and doors into a delightfully spooky environment.

Fun and Exciting Halloween Activities

There are many interesting ways to properly celebrate All Hallows Eve in the office. Below, we've put together a list to help you find some fun and exciting activities for you and your coworkers!

- Themed Costume Parties

A great way to liven up a dreary office is by organizing a themed costume party. Just choose a theme and see what your employees come up with!

- Cubicle Decorating Contest

If costumes aren’t your thing, another festive activity is to have your employees decorate their cubicles. It’s the perfect way to add a little flair to the workspace brighten up everyone’s day!

- Fun Games

There are a ton of fun holiday-oriented games you can play in the office! Pin the hat on the scarecrow, bobbing for apples, and pumpkin decorating contests are great options!

Celebrating Halloween Safely

As with any office environment, you want to ensure that it’s always as safe as possible for you and your employees. Keeping this in mind, you’ll want to be especially careful when decorating your workspace so that no injuries occur.

- Be careful with Halloween Decorations

Décor is a fun and exciting party of any holiday celebration, but you'll want to guarantee that it doesn't put you or your workers at risk. Avoid loose wires, and tuck away electrical cables to minimize tripping hazards.

- Use the right lighting

Any improper or outdated lighting setups should be tossed away as they stand the potential to become a significant fire hazard. You'll want to make sure all your lighting is safe and adequately maintained.

- Avoid combustible materials and open flames

Many Halloween decorations and costumes are made from highly flammable materials. Avoid open flames and pay special attention to the materials your decorations are made from to ensure that your office doesn't experience fires or damage.

- Read up on your insurance policies

For any business, it's essential to know exactly what your insurance covers and how the policies work. This due diligence can be extremely helpful in the event of a workplace accident or injury.

‘Clear span’ is an architectural term for the distance between the inner edges of span supports, i.e., the unsupported space.

There are no supporting pillars in a straightforward span design, as opposed to pole buildings.

Prefab metal buildings without columns or posts provide the most uninterrupted interior space. Steel buildings with a clear span are the best choice when maximum interior space is needed. Among the possible applications are:

Garage or Workshop in Texas

Metal Buildings

The weather in Texas can certainly pose its fair share of problems. With hot and humid summers, and cold, windy, and dry winters, Texas’s climate is unusual.

During the year, the temperature can range between 36 degrees Fahrenheit and 96 degrees Fahrenheit. With such extremes, it isn’t surprising that the Lone Star State is the state with most disasters. Floods, ice storms, droughts, and tornadoes are all common here, and Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc on the state in 2017. With all of this in mind, it isn’t too hard to see why a metal building in Texas is such a good idea. Metal garages and workshops withstand the humid, hot climate in Texas extremely well. They also resist natural disasters like tornadoes and hurricanes effectively when compared with other materials. When you need an outbuilding that is built to last, a metal workshop or metal garage in Texas is ideal.
