Cooking

Unattended cooking is the main reason for kitchen fires, so you should always stay in the area while you are frying or broiling. Avoid wearing loose clothes and move away any objects that could catch fire from an operating burner. 

Electricity 

Avoid that your electric appliances come into contact with water, keep in mind that your sockets and switches should be installed at least 12 inches from the sink. Don’t forget to check the condition of the cords and give regular maintenance to your kitchen appliances. 

Children

Your children should always stay at least 6 feet away from the stove, whether it’s operating or not, as they may knock over pans and saucepans that can lead to injuries and scalds. Remember to keep your knives, cleaning supplies and vitamins in a secure place out of their reach.
