Children’s Safety Inside The Kitchen? By Elizabeth Murphy

There are few places more fun to spend time with your kids than in the kitchen. Kids love to help out cooking, and it's a great way to spend time with them while teaching your kids a skill that they will use for life. But a child, of course, doesn't know their way around the kitchen the way an adult does. Whether kids are helping you cook or are simply in the room, you must always take precautions to ensure children's safety inside the kitchen. Below, you'll find some great kitchen safety tips to employ both when you're in the kitchen, and when you're not. Safety Tips While Cooking Kids love to help out, and you shouldn't let worries about kitchen safety get in the way of the chance to spend some great quality time with your kids. Just keep an eye on your kids and follow these tips to keep them safe in the kitchen. Turn pan handles in. If cooking on the stovetop while kids are nearby, make sure the handles of any pot and pans are turned in, and not facing or sticking out from the stove. This ensures that kids will not be able to grab hold of hot pans and tip them over. Watch out for tablecloths especially if toddlers or very young children are present. Make sure not to place any hot or heavy objects on top of towels, napkins, or tablecloths. Small children can grab onto hanging cloths and pull heavy or hot objects on top of themselves. Explain what you're doing. It's important to take the time to explain to your kids the dangers of the kitchen, and how to use kitchen appliances and utensils properly. Don't assume that they know just from watching you. Watch the microwave. Because it doesn't get hot on the outside, removing food from the microwave doesn't seem like a dangerous chore to allow kids to help with. But food in the microwave can be hotter than it appears. Never let kids remove food from the microwave unless they're tall enough to do it properly-- kids at face-level with the microwave are at risk of facial burns when removing food.

Of course, you always keep an eye on your kids when they're with you in the kitchen. But it's just as important to make your kitchen as safe as possible for those times you're not there with them. Appliance cords. Watch for hanging appliance cords, as it's easy for kids to grab hanging electrical cords and pull heavy appliances down on top of them. Coil or wrap all cords, and make sure they don't hang over the kitchen counters. Watch containers. Be sure never to pour poisonous or hazardous materials into drinking glasses, empty food containers, or soda bottles, as this can confuse kids and lead to serious injury. Install locks. Install safety locks on all drawers that contain dangerous materials or utensils. Always put a safety lock on the cabinet containing cleaning products and sharp knives. It's important that children are supervised when in the kitchen. Cooking can be an fun and enjoyable experience, but it's crucial that safety is important when dealing with http://www.kitchenaid.ca/en/ProductCategories/Cook_and_Bake.html appliances.

Remodeling Safety Tips By Tim Sousa

If you plan on remodeling your kitchen, you may be considering hiring a contractor for the project. On the other hand, you may plan on taking on the job yourself. That's fine, many people choose to remodel their kitchens themselves. You'll have more control over the remodeling project, and will most likely save yourself some money. One thing you should keep in mind though when you remodel your kitchen is the chance of accidents and/or injuries. It can happen, but by following certain safety tips, the chance of injury to yourself or others is minimized. One of the primary dangers of a remodeling project is tools. Whatever project you're working on, whether replacing the kitchen lights, kitchen cabinets, or the flooring, you will most likely be using tools which could possibly cause injuries if used improperly. Because of the risk of injury, it's important that you know the tools that you'll be using, and that you know how to use them properly. Chances are, you've used most of your tools before, and you know their proper use. But there's a chance you may be using something unfamiliar. Take some time to familiarize yourself with the tools that you do not know how to use. This will not only help you to finish your project more quickly and efficiently, but it will also reduce the risk of injury. You also need to know your physical limits. Know how much you can lift safely. If you try to lift something too heavy, you run the risk of back injury. If you need assistance in lifting something, don't hesitate to ask someone for some help. You also need to keep in mind your ability to work. You'll probably want to finish your remodeling project as soon as you can, but you shouldn't try to push yourself. If you get tired, then you should take a break. If you try to work when you're too tired, you risk making mistakes on your project, and also your safety. So, don't be afraid to take a break for a while, your project will still be there when you get back. Be aware of your surroundings while you're remodeling. Know who else is in the kitchen. If you're remodeling with the help of a friend or relative, you should know where they are at all times. You don't want to be tripping over them, or injuring them because of carelessness. You should also keep an eye on anyone who may enter the kitchen. If you have young children, it is a good idea to block the entrance to the kitchen, to keep them from entering, and possibly getting injured. Speaking of young children, you never want to leave your tools laying around unattended. Children may pick them up, and possibly injure themselves. The best tip, as far as safety, is to use your common sense when you take on a remodeling project. Listen to your body. If you feel that you're tired, or need a break, then take one. Not only will it keep you and anyone working with you safe, it will help to ensure quality work on the project.
