Kitchen Safety

Cooking can be a very enjoyable pastime but remember that safety in the kitchen is imperative. You are dealing with knives, fire, hot appliances and the often-forgotten danger: bacteria.

Observe basic safety rules and always be alert as one slip can cause a serious incident.

Knife Safety

If you do cut your hand, rinse the cut with cold water and apply pressure to stop the bleeding. Wrap in a clean cloth or paper towel and raise above your head and keep pressure on it until the bleeding stops. Apply an antibiotic cream and bandage.

If the cut is deep, stitches may be needed so visit the nearest emergency room for medical attention.

The kitchen is a gathering place for many occasions. By following these practices you can keep it a safe and happy experience for all.
