What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Staying Safe in the Kitchen

Studies have shown that most injuries occur where we often feel most safe: in our own homes. Major injuries are most likely to occur on stairs and in the kitchen. While children are especially at risk for these injuries, they are by no means the only people who can be badly hurt in a kitchen. Whenever you are cooking, baking, or simply setting up a kitchen, it is important to keep safety in mind.

Jacksonville personal injury lawyer Don Guthrie, P.A. wants to help people stay safe in their homes and elsewhere. To help you stay safe in your kitchen, please review the following tips. For information about compensation for preventable accidents, call our offices today at 904-296-1088.

Kitchen Safety Tips

Here are a few basic safety tips that will greatly reduce your chance of severe injury in the kitchen:

  • Do not store aerosol cans above the stove, as they can overheat and explode.
  • Keep the phone number for poison control (1-800-222-1222) clearly posted by the phone.
  • Always use separate utensils for handling cooked and raw meat.
  • Never pour water on grease or electrical fires. Always use a fire extinguisher or baking soda.
  • Do not allow small children in the kitchen unsupervised. Block the door when you are not there.
  • Take your time. Rushing increases the chances of an accident.
  • Keep your knives sharp, and watch your fingers while cutting or chopping.

Dangerous behavior in the kitchen does not only put you at risk; it can lead to serious injuries for anyone else nearby.
