Safety Precautions

I know it may sound a bit obvious bit please bear in mind the following when transporting or transferring the Peacelight. Remember even though you are transporting lighted candles, they are a source of heat and flame. Common sense safety measures will avoid accidents and where possible, either the approved Peace Light carriers or a candle lantern be used to transport the light (set up link).

When carrying the Light in the approved container, ensure that the flame is low, that there is no spillage of oil or paraffin remaining on the surface of the lamp or container and that the two sections of the container and securely fastened together. Check that the lamp is firmly fitted into the carrying case and that the lid and flange are securely fastened.

The lamp should be on a firm surface except when being carried. Unsupervised children should NOT be allowed near the lamp or container. When on the move, try and restrict movement to a minimum.

Remember children are fascinated by flames, and may be tempted to play with Peacelight candles or Christingles lit from it.

The top of the lamp/container will be warm or even hot depending upon the flame. It is advised that the person removing the Light from the container or refilling the lamp wear gloves. The side and base of the container will not he heated, nor will the base of the lamp.

When refilling the lamp it is recommended that the Light is passed on to a candle or night light so that the lamp is entinguished before filling the lamp. DO NOT OVERFILL THE LAMP.

When passing the flame from one lamp to another or to other candles, Christingles etc, the use of a long wax taper is advised. The top of the lamp should be replaced firmly as soon as practical.

Care should also be taken when the Light is left burning unattended (for instance, in church or other public place) and lamps or long life candles are recommended.
