Home Safety Tips:
Kitchen & Bathroom Safety
We’ve put together a list of tips and resources to help keep
yourself, your home, and your family safe.
Keep knives, forks, scissors and other sharp kitchen items out of easy reach of children on kitchen counters, preferably in a locked or latched drawer.
Unplug small appliances (toasters, blenders, etc) when not in use.
Be mindful of clothing and accessories when cooking: Bracelets can catch pot handles, long sleeves can catch fire.
Keep all cleaning products secured in a locked or latched drawer.
Keep medicines clearly marked, in child-proof containers, and separate for each family member.
Install non-slip surfaces in showers and bathtubs.
To prevent scalding, adjust your water heater so the hottest temperature at the faucet is no more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit (48.9 degrees Celsius).
