Health Tip: Take Care to Avoid Burns

Health Tip: Take Care to Avoid Burns

05/12/11

(HealthDay News) -- Nothing can spoil the fun of preparing your favorite recipe like burning yourself or a child in the process.

The U.S. Home Safety Council suggests these kitchen safety precautions while cooking:

  • Roll up shirtsleeves or wear a short-sleeved shirt.
  • Wear long oven mitts that extend up the arm.
  • Cook on back burners, with pot handles turned to the rear of the stove.
  • Teach children to stay away from the stove, and use a mark (such as a piece of tape on the floor) that they can't cross.
  • Don't let young children use the stove or microwave without supervision; make sure older children know how to use these appliances safely.
  • Keep matches, lighters and candles where young children can't reach them.
