When it comes to fire safety in the kitchen, you should pay attention to what you are doing. Kitchens burn down because people sometimes forget about shutting off the stove, the microwave, or oven. Once the oil gets hotter, it starts to smoke, then bursts into a fiery blaze which can be impossible to extinguish alone. For small fires, you can certainly do something about it by getting fire extinguishers. They are truly valuable when combustion unexpectedly occurs.Also, watch carefully your electrical wires. Cord snags can pose problems and may get someone electrocuted. Never plug or unplug kitchen equipment and appliances especially if your hands are damp. You do not want to become a kitchen casualty just because you have forgotten that cardinal rule.
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.
