Having a set out routine for daily cleaning is ideal, along with a regular deep cleaning routine or plan. Never let dishes pile up in the sink and make sure that you clean up after preparing food of any kind, to avoid cross contamination from raw fruit, vegetables, meat or poultry and this will make it easier to maintain clean and hygienic kitchen. Health and safety in the kitchen requires you to pay attention to what you are doing at all times, to ensure the safety of you but also your friends and family. A lot of what needs to be done is simply common sense, but it helps to remind yourself of key things that can be done every day, to maintain the health and safety of yourself and others.
However, by paying attention to our own health and safety around the home and particularly in the kitchen, a lot of the minor accidents that happen in the home can be avoided, if you take care and bear a few basic facts in mind. First look at the layout of your kitchen and consider ways that you could simplify things. This will involve taking a general overview as to the space itself. While doing this, look for any potential hazards which may arise such as obstructions or tripping hazards. Ensure that your floor covering is not wet and wipe up any spills straight away. If you have rugs make sure that they have a non-slip surface to avoid trips and falls. Once these are identified, you can take steps to make things safer and improve the safety of your kitchen.
Eco-friendly Lighting: When it comes to going green in the kitchen, you should choose your lighting carefully. When you choose the lighting for your new or remodeled kitchen, you can use products that will keep to the green theme. First, look to the types of bulbs you will use. Fixtures that have CFL bulbs rather than incandescent bulbs use one quarter of the power. LED lights can reduce energy consumption by 80-90%. Lamps and fixtures that use LED lights are usually built exclusively for that type of bulb. CFL bulbs can be used in any fixture that accepts a regular incandescent bulb. In addition to artificial lights, also consider the use of skylights and sufficient amounts of energy efficient windows in your plan. By making natural light readily available in your kitchen, you can significantly reduce the need for artificial light sources, at least during the day. You may also want to consider solar powered options for lighting.
Safety is always an important consideration with all electrical equipment. To avoid electric shock be sure to mount a television far enough away from any wet areas such as sink benches or dishwashers. The rule is that you should not be able to touch both wet area and kitchen TV at the same time. Even if the television is not faulty it is possible to build up a reasonable static charge on the plastic surface, which will discharge through you to any earthed objects such as a kitchen sink bench. Water proof models are a good choice if you are considering installing a television close to a wet area. A useful tip is to always use a remote control for your kitchen TV. Cover the remote control in plastic wrap or put it into a plastic bag. This will keep the remote control clean and protect it from water and oil spills. When installing your kitchen TV, remember to position it where you can see it clearly in the part of the kitchen that you work the most. This is because you can watch pre-recorded or live kitchen TV shows of cooking demonstrations to help you along the way. You can follow the demonstration as you cook. Have fun in the kitchen.
