Kitchen & Lab Safety Basic Kitchen Safety Store knives in a wooden block or in a drawer. Make sure the knives are out of reach. Never cook in loose clothes and keep long hair tied back. You dont want

anything accidentally catching fire (not to mention hair ending up in the food!). Basic Kitchen Safety Never cook while wearing dangling jewelry. A bracelet can get tangled around pot handles Keep potholders nearby and use them! Be careful not to leave them near an open flame

Basic Kitchen Safety Turn pot handles away from the front of the stove. Children cant grab them, and adults cant bump into them if theyre out of the way. Wipe up spills immediately. Keep the floor dry so that no one slips and falls.

Basic Kitchen Safety Separate raw meat and poultry from other items whenever you use or store them. This precaution avoids crosscontamination of harmful bacteria from one food to another. Wash your hands before handling food and after handling meat or poultry. Hands can be a virtual freight train of

bacteria. Basic Kitchen Safety Get a fire extinguisher for your kitchen. This device may not do much for your cherries jubilee, but it can avert a disaster. Make sure you know how to use it before a fire breaks out. You cant waste any time reading the directions amidst the flames.

How to wash your hands properly Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds (one slow round of twinkle twinkle little star) with warm water and soap before touching and preparing food & after using the bathroom. You must also wash them well after touching food and before moving on to another food. For example, if you handle raw chicken that has salmonella and then handle salad makings without washing your hands well, you most likely will contaminate the salad and ingest salmonella when you eat it, even though it will be killed off in the

chicken when it is done cooking. How to prevent kitchen fires Unplug electric appliances when not in use. Toaster ovens, mixers, coffee makers, and so on, continue to draw electricity even when theyre not turned on. So if the wiring is old or faulty a fire could

break out. Use caution when lighting the pilot light or burner on a gas stove. How to prevent kitchen fires Dont use metal in the microwave. The sparks can turn into fire or can seriously damage your microwave. Dont overfill pots or pans with oil or

grease. The hot oil or grease, like in this figure, can splatter and cause a fire. Wipe up spills and dont cook on a dirty stove. Grease buildup is flammable. A clean stove is a fire-free stove. How to prevent kitchen fires Never leave cooking food unattended. Stay in the kitchen, especially if youre cooking in grease or if the oven is at a

very high heat. Turn off the burner or oven if you need to leave the house or get caught up in a phone call. Keep dish towels, pot holders, and paper towels away from the stove. You might have left a burner on by accident, and built-up heat could ignite combustibles left near or on the stove or oven How to put out kitchen fires If you have a fire in the oven or the

microwave, close the door or keep it closed, and turn off the oven. Dont open the door! The lack of oxygen will suffocate the flames. If your oven continues to smoke like a fire is still going on in there, call the fire department How to put out kitchen fires If you have a fire in a cooking pan, use an oven mitt to clap on the lid, then move the

pan off the burner, and turn off the stove. The lack of oxygen will stop the flames in a pot. If you cant safely put the lid on a flaming pan or you dont have a lid for the pan, use your fire extinguisher. Aim at the base of the fire not the flames. How to put out kitchen fires Never use water to put out grease fires! Water repels grease

and can spread the fire by splattering the grease. Instead, try one of these methods: If the fire is small, cover the pan with a lid and turn off the burner. Throw lots of baking soda or salt on it. Never use flour, which can explode or make the fire worse. Smother the fire with a wet towel or other large wet cloth. Use a fire extinguisher.

How to put out kitchen fires Dont swat at a fire with a towel, apron, or other clothing. Youre likely to fan the flames and spread the fire. If the fire is spreading and you cant control it, get everyone out of the class and call 911! Clean while you cook Wash and put away knives that you use.

Clean utensils when youre done with them. Wipe down counters. Return food to the refrigerator. Basic Knife Safety Keep your knives sharp. But be sure to keep them out of reach of children. Dull knives can slip while youre cutting. Also, youre more apt to be careful with sharp knives. Slice away from your hand and keep your fingers clear of

the blade. Slicing away from your hand prevents an accidental cut if the knife slips. Basic Knife Safety When mincing, keep the tip of your knife on the cutting board and pump the handle up and down quickly. However, because that knife is moving fast, be extra careful about your fingers. Curl your fingers under and hold the food with your

fingertips when chopping. Better to ding a knuckle than slice a fingertip! Basic Knife Safety Dont lick the knives! Secure your cutting board. If it doesnt have rubber feet to help grip the counter, put a damp towel under the board when cutting. Never slice things freehand over the sink. Thats just an

accident waiting to happen! If you get cut Wash the cut and apply pressure to stop the bleeding. Raise your hand above your head while you press the cut with a cloth or paper towel until the bleeding stops. Put antibiotic cream on the cut and bandage it. Science Lab Safety

No horseplay No sitting (while doing most labs) No food or drinks Science Lab Safety Dont taste anything (unless told to do so) Science Lab Safety Never, ever directly smell

something in the lab! Always waft it *aka- Use your hand to push some air towards you to take a sniff of it. Is this correct? Science Lab Safety

Keep your lab area clean Lab Safety Clothing No Baggy Clothes Or Legs Exposed No Putting On Make-up No Dangling Jewelry No Spraying Perfume Or Hair Spray No Wearing Your Hair Down

Lab Safety Protection Equipment Wear goggles when necessary Contacts = No No **Also, wear your lab apron/coat and gloves if the lab requires! Lab Safety - Accidents

Let me know if something breaks, cracks, chips, spills, etc! I am not going to get mad, mistakes happenyou just need to tell me right away so I can clean it up! Lab Safety Emergencies

1) Eye wash station: The station should only be used if chemicals get in the eyes. Eyelids have to be forced opened to wash behind the eyelid. Be sure to wash from the nose out to the ear. This will stop you from washing chemicals back into the eye or into an unaffected eye. Flood eyes and eyelids with water for a minimum of 15 minutes. Contacts should not be worn during labs. If you are wearing them when involved with an accident, remove them as soon as possible to rinse eyes of any harmful chemicals.

Lab Safety - Emergencies 2) Safety Shower: You need to let me know right away and head for the safety shower. You need to remove the clothing that the chemicals have spilled onto right away.

Lab Safety - Emergencies 3) Fires Alert your teacher right away! If someone is on fire, wrap the fire blanket around them and dont forget the old stand-by STOP -- DROP -- & ROLL! Use the fire extinguisher if necessary!
