Keeping the Kitchen Accident Free
The kitchen could be both a fun hub and a dangerous den. There are many pieces of equipment and kitchen hazards that could harm you. Objects with sharp edges and pointers like forks and knives, open fire by the oven, electrical appliances, and even bacteria around the kitchen could be fatal. Hence, observing basic kitchen safety rules may be the habit to develop. The least slip can cause serious injury or accident therefore to prevent such happenings always pay attention to what you’re doing, adopt a plan for kitchen cleanliness, and have necessary safety equipment at your disposal. Here are a few safety tips.
Store knives in a wooden block or in a drawer
Make sure the knives are out of reach of children. In a wooden block, keep them with the sharp edges down and handles up. In a drawer, keep them facing the inner part of the drawer.
No lose clothes, hair to the back
You don’t want anything accidentally catching fire (not to mention hair ending up in the food!).
No dangling jewelry
A bracelet or long earrings can get tangled around pot handles which could easily lead to spills.
Keep potholders nearby and use them!
Be careful not to leave them near an open flame. Turn pot handles away from the front of the stove. Children can’t grab them, and adults can’t bump into them if they’re out of the way.
Wipe up spills immediately
Keep the floor dry so that no one slips and falls.
Separate raw meat and poultry from other items whenever you use or store them.
This precaution avoids cross-contamination of harmful bacteria from one food to another and always remember to wash your hands before and after handling meat or poultry. Hands can be a virtual freight train of bacteria.
Get a fire extinguisher for your kitchen.
You should do your best to prevent a kitchen fire, but sometimes it’s gets out of control. So, make sure you know how to use the extinguisher before a fire breaks out. You can’t waste any time reading the directions amidst the flames.
