Safety in the Kitchen

*Always walk in the kitchen and work slowly and carefully.

*Wear shoes that cover your whole foot. Wear clothes that cover most of you. Long, baggy clothes, however, can catch on fire.

*Wear a clean apron.

*Keep your hair out of the way, tied back or in a hat

*Use equipment only if you know exactly how to use it and you have permission from an adult.

*Always pick up a knife by its handle and never try to catch a falling knife.

*Cut away from your hands and body and away from anyone near you, paying close attention to what you are doing and always using a cutting board.

*When measuring, put the cup on something flat and stoop down to see if it is level, tapping the cup bottom on the flat surface to settle the ingredients.
