Guidelines on the use of candles in your home and communal areas

We want all residents to enjoy celebrations safely. Here is some guidance on using candles safely:

  • If possible, use battery operated lights instead of candles
  • All candles should be placed securely in a fireproof holder, on a stable and solid surface where they won’t be accidently knocked over
  • Keep candles away from flammable materials such as curtains and fabrics, as well as electric appliances such as TV sets
  • Never leave candles unattended. Please extinguish any candles before leaving a room or going to bed
  • Candles are not allowed to be used in communal areas such as hallways, stairwells and other shared areas
  • Never leave children unattended with lit candles
