Title: Kitchen Safety

Kitchen Safety
  • By Laura Glantzberg

It can happen to YOU!
  • The kitchen is one of the most dangerous places
    in the house. There are several precautions to
    take to prevent you from being another kitchen
    accident statistic.

Most Importantly
  • Know the safety practices!
  • Use the safety practices!

Avoid the following
  • Loose sleeves- loose sleeves can catch fire or
    get caught in appliances.
  • Long hair or jewelry- long hair should be tied
    back and jewelry should be removed to keep it
    from being caught in machinery (and for sanitary
  • Foodborne Illness- be sure to wash your hands
    often while in the kitchen

Dont forget!
  • Keep the handles of pots and pans turned inward
    and away from traffic.
  • Empty dishwasher after the dishes have cooled.
  • Wear slip-resistant shoes in order to prevent
  • When reaching for something on the top shelf, use
    a stool!

The Truth About Knives
  • Knives cause more severe injuries than any other
    hand tool.
  • A dull knife slips more easily than a sharp
  • Always cut away from your body.
  • When a knife starts to fall, let it!

Preventing Injuries from Glass
  • Store glasses and cups upside down.
  • If a glass breaks in soapy water, drain the water
    before attempting to clean up any of the glass.
  • If there is broken glass on the floor, use a
    broom and dust pan to clean it up. Never try to
    pick it up with bare hands.

More Reminders
  • Use a plexiglass or plastic cutting boards
    instead of a wooden one. Wooden cutting boards
    are more porous which can harbor more germs.
  • When lifting something heavy, bend your knees and
    use your legs, not your back.
  • Before operating any kitchen equipment, read the
    instruction manual.
  • Before cleaning or moving kitchen equipment,
    unplug it.
  • When unplugging an appliance, pull the plug NOT
    the cord.

Fire Safety for the Kitchen
  • Overloaded circuits can potentially cause fires.
  • Electricity and Water do not mix!
  • If theres a fire in your oven, close the oven
    door and turn off the heat.
  • If a pan is on fire, turn off the heat and cover
    the pan tightly.
  • Do NOT try to carry the pan outside!
  • To extinguish a fire, use a fire blanket, fire
    extinguisher, or baking soda.

Kitchen Safety
  • The most common injuries in the kitchen include
    burns, injuries from slips/trips/falls, cuts,
    strains, and electrical shock.
  • The best way to eliminate or minimize injury in
    the kitchen is to always follow safety
    procedures, know what to do in an emergency, and
    always be on the lookout for potential hazards.
