What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Burn Injuries: In the Kitchen

Not surprisingly, the kitchen is one of the most dangerous rooms in the house in terms of the likelihood of a burn injury. Kitchen appliances and the food they produce are often extremely hot, making it easy for people to burn themselves if they are not acting safely or paying attention.

By observing some simple precautions, however, you can help prevent against burn injuries in the kitchen and keep yourself and your family members safe.

  • Avoid multi-tasking while dealing with hot items. If you are working with something on the stove or in the oven, try not to have distracting conversations or handle other appliances, as you could easily lose your concentration and burn yourself or someone near you.
  • When carrying a hot item or hot contents, carry them over a countertop as much as possible. This way, should you drop or spill something, it will land on the counter and not on a person.
  • Keep any hot items as far back on the counter as possible to reduce the likelihood that something will spill and splatter.

If you have small children who are able to stand up, keep them out of the kitchen (if at all possible) while you are cooking so that they will not reach up and touch a hot stove or oven. If you can not leave your child in a separate room, you should use a playpen or baby gate to protect him or her from potentially dangerous items.
