Even though you spend hours every day in your kitchen, it is still one of the most dangerous places in your house. By taking note of the typical commotions that you encounter when preparing food, you might prevent them from happening frequently.
Slipping in Spilled Liquids
Having water spilled is a common mistake. You may experience it more times than you can count without ever having accidents. You may have splashed water on the floor while washing the cutlery or forgot that you have a pan boiled. Either way, it always happens. You can sometimes get too preoccupied that you forget about it until you or someone else slips on it.
If you continuously have kitchen duty, then there is no doubt that you have experienced getting burned. Whether boiling oil splashes, accidentally touching the pan, or removing something from the oven using a dishcloth instead of over gloves. There may not be much to prevent these occurrences from happening other than being more cautious and having the presence of mind of your surroundings.
Touching Chilli Peppers
Most home cooks love chili peppers as their spice choice to add that bit of flavor. However, if mishandled, it can lead to harmful results. Despite the spike in taste buds that chilies offer, they also can burn your skin due to its natural oils. To prevent accidental burns, you can use rubber gloves for added protection. You can also use vegetable oil to coat your hands, which stops the burning sensation.
Getting Cuts While Washing
Unless you get to enjoy the luxuries of a dishwasher, then manually washing dishes can be a droning, but necessary task. Although some people find it therapeutic, they also venture too much in their thoughts that they lose the needed attention on the task at hand. It opens the possibility of having a knife, or a chipped plate cut your skin.
Aside from the minorities mentioned above, there are also a handful of life-threatening accidents that can happen in your kitchen. Make sure to get the benefits you need with life insurance. Purchase a premium now and get coverages in investment, health, and protection.
