Toddler injured by hot cooking oil prompts kitchen safety to be top of mind

A story on Australia’s number one newsite,

With this in mind, I’d like to offer just a quick reminder that the kitchen is one of the busiest places in our homes and it’s easy to take shortcuts when we’re multi-tasking or distracted by family members or guests. So, as you prepare your meals, remember to pay careful attention to cooking utensils, pot handles and other items that stick out from the stove or have the potential to hang off your counter top. Turn them inward or move them far away from the edge. You never know when little fingers (and big ones, too!) might grab on to them.

These and other tips can be found on NFPA’s Cooking Fire Safety Central webpage. As you continue to keep safety and health in mind, you will surely provide a more secure environment for all.
